First Line Technology, LLC, the 2012 National Defense Industrial Association Small Business Success Story Winner, announced that the company was awarded a contract for Joint Sensitive Equipment Wipes (JSEW) from the Army Contracting Command in support of the Decontamination Family of Systems Program. The JSEWs from First Line contain FiberTect®, an activated carbon wipe for dry decontamination.
The Army is testing JSEWs for decontamination capabilities for sensitive equipment, such as weapons system optics and electronic equipment, as well as vehicles, hard shelters that have been exposed to chemical agents/contamination.
Each JSEW contains FiberTect wipes, a three layer, inert, flexible, drapable, nonwoven composite substrate for absorbing and adsorbing chemical warfare agents, toxic industrial materials, and small particulates like radiological and biological particles. FiberTect is self-contained and packaged for easy use, storage, and transport.
“Dry decon is a better way to decontaminate sensitive equipment than conventional methods,” said First Line Technology President Amit Kapoor. “We here at First Line are honored to have been selected to create this JSEW product, using FiberTect, for the Department of the Army and provide a cost-effective solution that supports the warfighter.”
