The Defence Chemical,
Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Centre (DCBRNC) has taken delivery of the
latest CBRN training simulation systems.
Supplied by UK manufacturer Argon Electronics, the new systems include both instrumentation and simulation software.
“The acquisition of this latest equipment is an important step for the CBRN training centre, providing our trainers with a range of sophisticated tools that allow us to simulate a wide range of threat scenarios,” CBRN Programme Team Leader, Phil Strudley, said.
The CBRN team worked closely with Argon to ensure that the contract was fulfilled on time and within budget.
“The equipment was specified, ordered and delivered within sixteen weeks,” Strudley added.
“This shows what can be achieved with a good working relationship between our DE&S team and a specialised UK manufacturer”.
The Argon equipment includes the company’s latest CAMSIM and LCAD hand held instruments, the MCAD simulator and the advanced PlumeSIM wide area CBRN field exercise and desktop training system.
This enables instructors to manage multiple remote simulator instruments under a fully configurable virtual plume, in real time, over user selected mapping.
Strudley said, “Tools such as PlumeSIM will allow us to train personnel faster and more efficiently, giving them the knowledge and experience that will help them perform an even better job once they return to operational duties.
These advanced simulators will also help reduce the Integrated Logistics Support costs associated with our detectors,” he concluded.
