Enhanced personal CBRNe detection capabilities were at the forefront of AIRSENSE Analytics GmbH’s presence at Future Forces Forum in Prague this week. Pride of place among the range of detectors on the company’s booth was the GDA-P, launched early in 2016.
“GDA-P contains technology in common use for the detection of CWA (chemical warfare agents) and the detector quality is superior to any similarly sized device in terms of resolution and sensitivity,” CEO Wolf Münchmeyer told Mönch at the show. He added that demands from existing and potential users include a requirement to make the device much more insensitive to changes in environmental conditions, which makes the challenge of packing superior performance into ever smaller physical dimensions a significant one.
The market is both busy and demanding right now, Münchmeyer told Mönch: Military users with equipment procured a decade or more ago are faced with the necessity to confront threats that did not even exist when their systems were designed; civil authorities are faced with a greater need for detection and identification of a wider range of substances than ever before. GDA-P provides a solution for both communities, capable of detecting substances across the full bandwidth of CWA and TIC (toxic industrial compounds.)
