US Next Generation Chemical Detector program gathers speed

Despite the effects of budget cuts in the US they still press on at the forefront of CBRN research and procurement with the evolution of a request for proposals and draft specifications for their Next Generation Chemical Detector (NGCD) program. Planned for release in 3rd quarter 2013 it plans to award contracts to multiple vendors for system prototypes.

Although this phase if for technology development it will see procurement in 2016 for what will be one of the largest CBRN contracts, certainly for chemical detection, in the world.

The question other countries must ask is if they don't bring forward their own activities will they end up only having the option of variants of US research as their own procurement options?
