TSA to buys explosive detection system equipment and services from L-3 for airport in Portland, OR
TSA has decided to award a sole source contract to L-3 Communications Corp., of Woburn, MA, the incumbent supplier of medium speed explosives detection systems at the Portland International Airport in Portland, OR, for the supply of “ancillary equipment items and services” to support those detection systems.
TSA pointed out that “numerous ancillary equipment items are required to support the MSEDS [Medium Speed Explosives Detection System] unit and are specific to the contractor that manufactured the MSEDS unit.”
TSA plans to purchase a wide range of items from L-3, including a primary and secondary viewing station, bar code reader, printer, multiplex network server, training simulator, uninterruptible power supply, and much more. It also intends to procure services from L-3, including training, site surveys, equipment reinstallation and relocation, maintenance, and much more.
The estimated value of all equipment and services will reach about $7.5 million, says a “limited sources justification” document issued by TSA on September 16.
