FLIR Systems, Inc. announced today it has received a delivery order for FLIR IBAC ™ 2 biological agent detector systems to support the United States (U.S.) Forces Korea (USFK).
The delivery order is under a 10-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract in support of the Joint United States Forces Korea Portal and Integrated Threat Recognition (JUPITR) program led by the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD).

The FLIR IBAC 2 is a real-time air monitor that alarms in less than 60 seconds when an airborne bio-threat, such as spore, viral, cellular, and protein toxins, are present, then collects, preserves, and transmits data to command and control centers. With more than 1,500 operating units worldwide, the FLIR IBAC 2 is the most widely deployed biological trigger on the market today.
“We are proud to support our U.S. militaries with reliable products that ensure accurate analysis of biological threats for safe and fast response,” said David Ray, President of the Government and Defense Business Unit at FLIR “This order supports our mission to provide solutions that save lives and livelihoods, equipping U.S. soldiers with technology that gathers, interprets, and communicates actionable information, reducing decision time in support of our national security.”
