Argon Electronics was established in 1987 and has since become a leading global provider in the development and manufacture of hazardous material detector simulators, most notably in the fields of military Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRNe) defence. Our simulators have applications from civil response to unconventional terrorism and accidental release, and international treaty verification, with a growing presence in the nuclear energy generation, industrial, petrochemical and education markets.
Argon simulation systems are designed and developed using a proprietary common technology platform, and recognition of the validity of this integrated approach to instrumented training has been evidenced by supply to many of the foremost organisations in this arena, and the need to double the size of our premises in 2006.
After 30 years of providing innovative solutions to our customers and a distribution network across the UK, Europe and the US, Argon continues to meet the ongoing technological advance and expanding array of fielded detection systems that has generated an ever growing and increasingly critical need for comprehensive training. By combining strong relationships with many of the leading detector manufacturers with the development of versatile new platforms for professionals responsible for delivery of the highest standards in training, Argon offers the assurance of safe and cost effective training for which there is no alternative.
Argon has been at the forefront of CBRNe and Hazardous material simulator design and manufacture for in excess of 25 years. Privately held and based in the United Kingdom, Argon’s substantial Intellectual Property portfolio spans worldwide with customers in the US and Europe, enabling the company to develop world class simulation systems that have transformed CBRN and HazMat training for our customers.
The company has a strong relationship with many of the world’s leading detector manufacturers enabling its products to meet the highest levels of simulation fidelity. Our high regard for quality and the environment, demonstrated by our ISO9001 and ISO14001 accreditation and support of different charities through the years is testament to our sense of corporate social responsibility.
The technology Argon employs, and the manner in which it is employed is unique, in that the actual detection characteristics of each detector are replicated, enabling multi substance, multi detector training to take place in a safe, environmentally friendly manner.
We consider ourselves world leaders in our field, and strive through technical innovation and excellent customer service to maintain that position.
