DefExpo 2018 is the tenth in a series of biennial Land, Naval and International Homeland Security Systems exhibitions.

Together with Strongfield Technologies, Argon Electronics will be exhibiting a wide range of CBRN training systems that replicate detection equipment currently used by the India Armed Forces.

Simulator equipment on display will include:

  • Camsim - a powerful training simulator for the Smiths Detection CAM Chemical Agent Monitor
  • AP4C-SIM - Argon's simulator for the Proengin AP4C chemical detector
  • ACADASIM - which uses Smiths Detection GID-3 / ADADA to create remote threat detection scenarios suitable for both single and group use
  • RADSIM SS2- a generic radiation survey simulator that enables the safe training of radiation surveying and dose management
  • PlumeSIM - an instrumented CBRN training system used by leading training facilities worldwide
  • PlumeSIM-SMART - an App-based system that facilitates tabletop and field emergency planning exercises for both command officer and operator training
Please get in touch if you'd like to arrange a time for a one-to-one meeting to discuss your requirements.
