Smiths Detection's LCD-NEXUS is a highly selective and sensitive Chemical Warfare Agent (CWA) and Toxic Industrial Chemical (TIC) detector suitable for harsh environments. The portable system is capable of detecting harmful agents down to miosis levels, greatly increasing critical information needed by emergency responders and military personnel.
Based on technology originally developed for the U.S. Department of Defense’s Joint Chemical Agent Detector (JCAD) program, the largest chemical protection program in the world, the LCD-NEXUS is an extension of Smiths Detection’s LCD product which uses advanced Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) technology.
The system provides critical chemical details including class, type, concentration and dosage as well as CWA identification. Its communications capabilities enable systems to be networked together and remotely controlled, creating an invisible, low-maintenance and reliable CWA warning grid for enhanced perimeter protection.
