Teledyne Brown Engineering, Inc., has been awarded a contract by the Department of Defense to aid the nation's front line performers in defense against chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive weapons of mass destruction.

The contract, awarded under a multiple award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract, is to provide acquisition program and engineering support, research and technology, and program and integration support.

Nine other contract winners were announced along with Teledyne Brown, a subsidiary of Teledyne Technologies Incorporated, to provide as much as $485 million in support services over the next five years.

"Teledyne Brown is committed to applying its engineering and manufacturing expertise toward the DoD's effort to upgrade its chemical and biological defense equipment," Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Teledyne Technologies, said. "Teledyne is here to support our warfighters on the battlefield and enhance homeland security."

Work for the contract will be primarily performed in Hunstville, Ala., and at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md.

In the past, Teledyne Brown has provided the Department of Defense with chemical weapons disposal support for its Non-Stockpile Chemical Materiel Program, enhanced protection to the warfighters against improvised explosives,  a new chemical and biological warfare agent decontamination system for sensitive electronics and avionics and a new biological detector test chamber.
