Written by Steven Pike on 13 Aug 2015

Argon Electronics is a world leader in simulation systems focused on platforms for defence from chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) attacks and incidents involving hazardous material (HazMat). The UK SME was founded 28 years ago and provides its products to response teams across the globe, including in Canada, Ireland, Portugal, Sweden, the UK and the US.

Now, Argon Electronics is releasing the next generation of its hugely successful product, PlumeSIM, which will be showcased for the first time at DSEI 2015. PlumeSIM is a wide area field exercise and table top training system using Argon CBRN/HazMat simulators. The portable system enables remote instructor management of its chemical and radiological simulator instruments under a fully configurable ‘virtual plume’, in real time, over user-selected mapping.
