In May, Immediate Response Technologies, Inc. was awarded an IDIQ (Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity) contract to produce the filter canister for the M-53 mask by U.S. Army TACOM. The M-53 mask is designed to function as a conventional mask, as well as with a SCBA or with the IRT CBRN CAP 1 PAPR System. The M-53 mask is used by all branches of the military. It meets the specific requirements of Specialized Operating Forces to protect against multiple threats found on today's battlefield. In the last three years IRT has also produced over 3 million C2A1 filter canisters for the U.S. Army and over 300,000 M-96 filter canisters for both military and civilian first responder organizations.
IRT was incorporated January 28, 1977 when it introduced its patented Radiant Heating Panels to the commercial marketplace. In 1980, IRT responded to a request from the Department of Defense (DoD) for technical assistance in the area of military thermal targets. The DoD was interested in the application of IRT's radiant heating panel technology to the development of thermal targets in support of M60A3 tank gunnery training and certification.
IRT has been ISO 9001:2000 Certified and our products and services are used by the Army National Guard and Air Guard in all 50 U.S. states. US Army has deployed IRT shelters in Puerto Rico, Korea, Germany, Iraq, Afghanistan, and with the Ministry of Defense in Australia. We design, manufacture and market a variety of products, including rapid deploy shelter systems for first responders, first receivers, government, military, and commercial markets.
