Australian company Oil Pollution and Environmental Control (OPEC) Systems announced on 19 June that it has signed an AUD23 million (USD15.8 million) contract with Leidos Australia to provide a range of equipment, including a newly developed protective ensemble, as part of Project Land 2110 Phase 1B covering chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) protection.

This comes after the Australian Department of Defence (DoD) awarded Leidos a AUD243.5 million contract in September 2018 for Land 2110 Phase 1B.

OPEC Systems said it would commence rollout in early 2020 of Kestrel medium-protective CBRN ensembles; collapsible waste water containment bunds for capturing liquid contamination; collapsible, helicopter-transportable liquid storage drums for potable and waste water; and mitts for rapid chemical decontamination.
