Cherif Rizkalla, Chief Commercial Officer of Smiths Detection, said: "This award underlines our global leadership in technologies that help protect soldiers and first responders from chemical, biological, radiological and explosive threats."
The LCD, which can be hand-held or clipped to a belt, detects and identifies threats by determining the agent or type, class, concentration and dosage of exposure. It can also act as a screening and survey device and is used by forces around the world including British, US, Canadian, Australian, Danish and Norwegian.
