Discover Argon's CBRN simulator training tools at FMI Industry Day

Written by Steven Pike on 28 July 2021

FMI Industry Day 2021Representatives from Danish military defense, security, aerospace and emergency response sectors will be converging in Ballerup, Denmark, on August 26th 2021 for the Ministry of Defence Material and Procurement Agency ‘FMI Industry Day’. 

With a reputation as the country’s largest exhibition of security and defense equipment, FMI Industry Day will provide the opportunity for attendees to explore new developments in the fields of CBRN technology and emergency preparedness available from Argon.

The event will offer a unique platform in which FMI technical caseworkers and commanders can meet with members of the Danish Embassy, Police, Emergency Management Agency and leaders in defense technology. 

FMI Industry Day Exhibition

The FMI is responsible for the procurement, operation and disposal of defense and emergency preparedness equipment and information technology for the Danish Army, Navy, Air Force, Special Operations Command, Home Guard and Emergency Management Agency. 

FMI Industry Day will begin with a welcome speech from the Commander and National Armaments Director of the Danish Ministry of Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organisation (DALO), Lieutenant General Kim Jesper Jorgensen. 

Argon Electronics is delighted to be among the companies exhibiting at the event where, together with our Danish representative Military Equipment Denmark (MED), we will be offering demonstrations of a selection of our world-leading CBRN simulator training systems. 

Explore the potential of simulator-based CBRN training

Simulator training technologies have a pivotal role to play in preparing defense, security and emergency response personnel for the challenges of CBRN incidents. 

Argon’s comprehensive range of simulator training tools enable the provision of highly realistic training in core CBRN and HazMat skills including contamination avoidance, monitoring and control, reconnaissance, search and survey. 

Attendees at FMI Industry Day will have the opportunity to view Argon’s high fidelity simulators for the Smiths LCD3.3, the Proengin AP4C, the Thermo Scientific RadEye GF-10 and the Mirion RDS-100 probe set.

Argon's powerful instrumented CBRN training system, PlumeSIM and the app-based system PlumeSIM-SMART, will also be showcased.


Argon’s chemical hazard simulator for the Smiths Detection LCD3.3 responds to electronic sources to accurately depict the behaviour and characteristics of chemical vapours (including nerve, blister, blood and choking agents), TICs and false positives.

The LCD3.3-SIM is also fully compatible with the PlumeSIM system to enable instructors to facilitate instrumented collective wide area field exercises and table-top training.


The AP4C-SIM simulates response to all substance channels, including explosive atmospheres, as well as recreating the effects of wind direction, temperature, persistency and full/partial decontamination.

The training simulator comes supplied complete with simulation sources, two simulation hydrogen cells, error reporting cards, survey nozzles and system carry case. 

A simple instructor remote ensures trainers retain complete control of each exercise.

RadEye GF-10 SIM

With its powerful proprietary signal processing capability, the RadEye GF-10 SIM is able to simulate realistic, high quality and repeatable readings that reflect the differences in accepted tolerances of actual radiological detectors.

The system also accurately depicts the effects of user body shielding to ensure personnel are confident in interpreting their detector readings and alarms.


The RDS-100-SIM comprises three simulation probes that have been designed for use in conjunction with the real RDS-100 meter.

The simulator replicates the operational features of actual Mitrion/Canberra RDS-100 probes to enable trainees to experience the effects of inverse square law and shielding without any use of real radiation sources or radioactive materials.

The RDS-100 SIM probe set is also compatible with the AN/PDR-77 survey meter.


The PlumeSIM wide-area instrumented training system provides CBRN instructors with the freedom to devise a diverse range of user-defined threat scenarios involving multiple personnel and conducted in real-time.

PlumeSIM replicates variations in environmental conditions, changes in wind direction and the simulation of plumes, deposition and hotspots.


With the use of the app-based PlumeSIM-SMART system, instructors can create engaging tabletop and live-field CBRN scenarios that depict the challenging conditions of nuclear reactor incidents, petrochemical accidents, toxic substance releases and radiological releases. 

The Argon Electronics team looks forward to welcoming our Danish defense and emergency preparedness colleagues to FMI Industry Day and to answering any questions that you may have regarding the use of CBRN-based simulator training technologies within your existing programmes of instruction.

If you have specific products or topics that you would like to explore in further detail, please feel free to get in touch to schedule a one-to-one meeting.
