Teledyne Technologies Inc. announced that Teledyne Brown Engineering Inc. has received a five-year extension to its ID/IQ contract with the US Army's Non-Stockpile Chemical Materiel Project. Teledyne Brown Engineering has worked with the Project Manager for Non Stockpile Chemical Materiel on 25 separate tasks for two ID/IQ contracts. During this 10-year period, the company provided project management, engineering, laboratory, air monitoring and operations support for testing, fielding and operations of mobile chemical agent demilitarization systems and other chemical agent materiel projects. Teledyne Brown Engineering was awarded over $130 M during the first ID/IQ contract that ended in December of 2001. To date, the company has been awarded tasks totaling approximately $75 M as part of this current contract.

"This contract extension reflects the high level of confidence the Army has in Teledyne Brown's ability to effectively and safely support the destruction of chemical agents," said Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Teledyne Technologies. "Teledyne Brown looks forward to continuing to serve the Army with this initiative."

The scope of the extended contract is expected to include operation of the Rapid Response System at other facilities, program management and integration, equipment design, fabrication, construction, engineering and supporting the disposal of non-stockpile chemical material at various sites.
