Chemical Agent Sensor
The Chemical Agent Sensor Project will provide the CAF with a modern suite of sensors and related systems to detect, identify and monitor Chemical Warfare Agents (CWA) and Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs).
The project will be delivered in three implementation phases:
(a) Phase 1 (Completed) - procurement of the Local detection and Identification System.
The Local System consists of:
- Detector Fixed Site;
- Detector Hand Held Portable;
- Chemical Identification System; and
- Chemical and Biological Sample Collection and Transportation Kits;
(b) Phase 2 (Completed) - procurement of a Personal System, which consists of detectors for individual soldiers; and
(c) Phase 3 (Underway) - procurement of an Area System, which consists of a sensor to detect a chemical hazard at some distance from the detector’s location.
