For the first time at Hazardex 2017 in Runcorn Argon will be demonstrating PlumeSIM-SMART, a new innovative solution to managing and mitigating the consequences of offsite releases. PlumeSIM-SMART enables chemical and radiological releases to be simulated permitting monitoring teams, management and emergency responders to train, test and verify their offsite emergency response plans to ensure compliance with COMAH regulations and SEVESO directives.
The UK MoD has awarded a three year support contract to Argon Electronics with an option for a further two years extension. The competitively bid contract is for the provision of support for CBRN training systems previously delivered by Argon. The contract enables the UK MoD to receive technical support assistance, the provision of maintenance and training services and spares purchase. UK MoD invested a considerable sum of money with Argon to deliver high quality CBRN training systems, including PlumeSIM, and this support contract will help ensure UK MoD continue to maximise the benefits of that investment.
The first PlumeSIM order to be delivered to the Middle East region has been received by Argon, and represents a significant stage in the company’s growth in this important part of the world.
In addition to PlumeSIM, the contract includes a number of training simulators. This additional contract follows an earlier delivery of simulators to the same customer, the use of which supported an important national CBRN exercise proving extremely successful.
A significant CBRN simulator order that demonstrates how seriously CBRN training is being taken in the Middle East region has been awarded to Argon Electronics.

The customer identity is subject to confidentiality agreement, however the requirement was delivered and training completed to extremely tight deadlines in order to support an important national training exercise.
