CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Chemring Detection Systems (CDS) (http://www.chemringds.com), a Chemring Group PLC ("Chemring") subsidiary, is pleased to announce that it was awarded two strategic contracts for chemical detection. The awards were made by the Joint Project Manager for Nuclear Biological and Chemical Contamination Avoidance (JPM NBC CA) for the Multi Mission Multi Threat Detection (M3TD) project. "These important contracts help us to evaluate the capability of our new detection products," said Bill Gural, President of CDS.
The first award was in the "Raman" category for test and evaluation of the THOR-1064 product currently in development at CDS. The THOR-1064 detects the presence of compounds in solid or liquid form, identifies the specific compound detected, and automatically alarms to notify users of a positive detection. THOR-1064 provides laboratory quality measurements in a rugged, handheld device. The second award was in the Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) category for test and evaluation of the Differential Mobility Spectrometer Vapor Detection System (DMSVD), a developmental prototype at CDS. The DMSVD is a non-contact vapor detector based on Differential Mobility Spectrometry. DMS offers improved sensitivity and selectivity over Ion Mobility Spectrometry based devices. DMS technology has been implemented into CDS' JUNO® handheld vapor detector, currently available for sale, which includes a library of Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) and chemical warfare agents. Development work will be performed at Chemring Detection Systems' plant in Charlotte, NC and testing will be performed at Aberdeen Proving Ground and in Columbus, OH.
