The new systems will be based on Smiths Detection’s handheld Lightweight Chemical Detector (LCD). The LCD is a cost-effective solution for military and homeland security organizations, capable of detecting hazardous toxic and chemical substances.

Stephen Esposito, VP and General Manager of Smiths Detection Defense Solutions said: “SDI has a long relationship supporting the JCAD program, one of the most effective chemical warfare protection solutions for U.S. troops in history. SDI is committed to contributing to the success of this program and technology, which is used by service members worldwide.”
