MoD To Get Chemical Agent Detection System For Army


Ministry of Defence (MoD) has initiated the process of procuring automatic chemical agent detector and alarm (ACADA) system for detecting, monitoring and identifying chemical agents in battlefields.
Last week, the army chief had expressed concerns over the increasing threats from chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) weapons and said that the same was becoming a reality.

A senior army officer told TOI over the phone from New Delhi. “The ACADA is capable of providing an audio and visual alarm in an event of a chemical strike before the contamination reaches the troops. This will provide the troops with the opportunity to wear protective equipment and maintain operational effectiveness in a highly volatile contaminated environment. Such equipment were used effectively by the US troops while fighting against ISIS in the recent past.” Read More…
