Argon has won its first major order from India, comprising a comprehensive suite of chemical detector simulators. The order underlines Argon’s proven capability to develop products that permit cost-effective, best practice delivery, a skill that is increasingly being proven on an international scale with other recent contracts for the armed forces in the UK, Ireland, Canada and Sweden.
The equipment has been requested by the Indian Army’s premier CBRN training establishment, the Faculty of Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Protection at the College of Military Engineering, located in Pune, Maharashtra. The order includes CAMSIM, ChemPro100-SIM and GID-3-SIM, reflecting the range of real CWA (Chemical Warfare Agent) detectors currently in service with the Indian Army. Argon has worked closely with its local partners and end users to ensure that the equipment supplied will meet the current and future training capability requirements of the Faculty.
Argon Sales Manager for India, Patrick Hickmott, said, “We are delighted to have received this prestigious contract, which represents the Indian Army’s on-going commitment to delivering world class CBRN training through its Centres of Excellence. Argon looks forward to further developing its commitment to offering state-of-the-art simulation training solutions that meet the dedicated needs of our clients in facing the global CBRN challenge.”
Argon will be presenting a paper on international best practice in CBRN detection training and exhibiting its latest products at the CBRNe India 2013 conference and exhibition, to be held at the Kothari Auditorium, DRDO HQ, New Delhi, India, on the 16th and 17th April 2013.
