Army Corps of Engineers Selects BPSI as Part of $250M Security Contract
Building Protection Systems Inc. (BPSI), the developers of a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear (CBRN) detection system for critical facilities and buildings, announced that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have selected its technology as part of a $250M small business award. BPSI's partner, Trofholz Technologies Inc. (TTI), has been awarded a contract to provide electronic security systems for the U.S. Army Corps. As part of TTI's contract, BPSI will provide its U.S. Department of Homeland Security SAFETY Act-designated Sentry One system for CBRN contaminate detection. This $250 million indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract is a three-year award with a two-year option.
"BPSI is honored to be recognized in supporting the Army Corps by providing our next-generation CBRN solution," said Greg Eiler, founder and CEO of BPSI. "Protecting the air that we breathe is critical to physical security, and we are pleased to be teaming up with Trofholz Technologies to deliver a comprehensive security approach."
"Protecting the ventilation system is a critical feature in today's physical security design. We are pleased to be able to provide the U.S. Army Corps with top-tier Electronic Security Systems, which now includes BPSI's reliable and robust detection solution," said Yvonne Glenn, president and CEO of Trofholz Technologies Inc.
BPSI's active continuous air monitoring systems are in use in Fortune 100 corporate headquarters buildings and other facilities. Upon detection of dangerous toxins, the BPSI system identifies the toxins in seconds, then automatically activates the predetermined mitigation protocol to protect occupants. In parallel, BPSI's system relays real-time toxin and location data to first-responders to expedite a safe rescue and recovery.
