Argon Electronics delivers GBP 150k Australian DoD contracts for NASCAP enhanced chemical detection alarm systems

Luton, U.K., 1 October 2007 --[ASDWire]-- Argon Electronics LLP has announced the completed delivery of several NASCAP (Networked Alarm System Central Alarm Processor) systems for the Australian Department of Defence to augment the operational capability of the GID-3(tm) chemical agent detector already in service with the Australian Army. With separate orders of a total value in excess of pound150,000, delivery of the first system was made in June 2006 with further systems supplied during May this year. The NASCAP system is a man portable, ready-to-go rapid deployment system that allows multiple stand-alone chemical point detectors to be radio networked to a single flexible architecture base station for safe and efficient remote monitoring of the detection instrument's status and enhanced threat reporting in the event of alarm activation. The system allows armed forces to monitor detectors from secure locations whilst providing troops with advanced warning of chemical agent attack and allowing them to create a network of remote chemical sentries at the scene of any potential or suspected release. The NASCAP system can also be used to enhance discrete security at high profile civil events. Argon Electronics LLP is a U.K. based specialist developer of detector networking systems and a world leader in the design and manufacture of instrumented simulation training systems for the international civil and military CBRN detection market.
