Airboss Wins DOD Contract for CBRN Overboot
AirBoss of America Corp. today announced that AirBoss Defense has been awarded an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract from the U.S. Department of Defense for the manufacture and sale of up to 600,000 pairs of Molded CBRN Lightweight Overboots (MALO). The contract is expected to be worth up to an aggregate amount of US$26.7 Million. To date, AirBoss Defense has received one order under the contract for 84,800 pairs of MALOs, worth approximately US$3.8 million. The delivery period for this initial order is anticipated to be from Q2 2020 through Q3 2020.
The MALO, made with an injection-molded advanced specialty polymer, was originally designed and developed to provide superior physical properties and protection compared to chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) overboots then in service, and fully integrates with all currently fielded CBRN Suits. The MALO has been broadly adopted worldwide and been used in more than 40 countries. To date AirBoss has sold more than 445,000 pairs of MALO boots.
