This challenge invites the innovation community to submit relevant, usable, effective, and feasible concepts that protect the user against aerosolized chemical, biological, and radiological (CBR) hazards and provides oxygen.
India has successfully test-fired nuclear-capable ballistic missile Agni-5, which has a strike range of 5,000 km, from Dr Abdul Kalam Island off the Odisha coast. According to defence forces, this is the seventh trial of the surface-to-surface missile.
With its unique positioning in the detection of CBRN threats, Bertin Technologies has been selected, in a consortium with Thales, by the Ministry of the Armed Forces for the upstream research market “Platform for the Integration of Innovative Technologies in the Domain of Biological and Chemical Analysis “(PI ABC), which aims to structure, in the coming years, the development of new equipment for the detection and identification of chemical and biological threats.
The CBRN threat (Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear), particularly the use of chemical agents for terrorist purposes, is more and more taken into account by international authorities.
To monitor this threat, the Japanese National Police Agency (NPA) deployed the Second Sight gas remote sensing camera.
