SENTEL Wins Two Joint USFK Portal and Integrated Threat Recognition (JUPITR) Task Orders
SENTEL Corporation (SENTEL) is pleased to announce that on July 17, 2015, the firm won a $550K Task Order under the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosives (CBRNE) Mission Support Contract as a subcontractor to Leidos! The Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO CBD) is responsible for development, production, and fielding of CBRN detection and identification systems. The JPEO CBD is conducting the JUPITR program to fill known operational gaps in biological agent detection and identification. Under this Task Order, SENTEL will provide software and hardware development, interface upgrades, and system integration specifications. We will modify the current Sensor Management System and Command Post in the Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear fixed site platform software. Our objective is to build on a successful operational demonstration in South Korea with an enhanced cyber security solution keeping Information Assurance compliance in mind. In addition, SENTEL was awarded the JUPITR Whole System Live Agent Test (WSLAT) Task Order under the Homeland Defense & Security Technical Area (HDTAT) contract as a subcontractor to National Security Information Associates, LLC. Our engineers will support biodetection sensor evaluation at Dugway Proving Ground, UT in the state-of-the-art biological agent WSLAT aerosol chamber. SENTEL began its support to the JUPITR project in June 2014. All together the team spent approximately 2 months in Korea supporting a successful Operational Demonstration. The resounding positive feedback received from our customer is a tribute to the outstanding work these SENTEL ambassadors provided: “…the team I worked with was one that I respect greatly and am amazed at how well we came together on a common path to execute something that seemed near impossible in the timeline we were given. As I move into my new role at headquarters JPEO I hope to keep continued contact with your folks and would consider them as a key asset in any new challenges that arise in my new position.” We heartily congratulate Michael Smith – VP of Engineering, and all who supported this effort resulting in an award to SENTEL.
