First Line Technology To Supply Army With Joint Sensitive Equipment Wipes

First Line Technology LLC, a Chantilly, Va.-based supplier of innovative solutions for first-responder and military applications, has received a contract from the Army Contracting Command — Aberdeen Proving Ground Contracting (ACC-APG) Center, Natick Contracting Division, Natick, Mass., to supply its Joint Sensitive Equipment Wipes (JSEWs) for use in the Joint Project Manager for Protection and the Decontamination Family of Systems Program.

First Line's JSEWs contain FiberTect®, an activated carbon dry decontamination wipe developed at The Institute for Environmental and Human Health at Lubbock, Texas-based Texas Tech University. The wipe comprises a three-layer nonwoven composite substrate that is flexible and drapable; and can absorb and adsorb chemical warfare agents, toxic industrial materials, and radiological and biological particles. The FiberTect wipe is commercially available and is already being used by other federal agencies for decontamination applications.

The First Line product is among several commercially available items selected by the Department of the Army for testing in order to determine their decontamination capabilities and other effects when used on both sensitive and non-sensitive equipment that have been contaminated by chemical or other agents.
