Indra has completed the development of a vehicle for recognising Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear threats, in addition to improvised explosives (NRBCe).
The system allows specialised staff to travel to contaminated areas so they may perform tasks for detecting and identifying possible contaminant agents in safe conditions. This R&D project has been backed by the CDTI.
Using a commercial van as the platform, Indra has created a secure work area for two operators, an operations chief and the driver. The vehicle is pressurised, and in the event of an accident that affects its habitability, an oxygen mask system connected to the filtering device makes it possible to breathe clean air.
