The JCAD is based on Smiths Detection's LCD product line of advanced, light-weight, threat detection devices that can be easily strapped to a belt. The LCD is a cost-effective solution that protects military personnel, police and hazmat responders by testing the air and providing an immediate warning if dangerous chemicals such as warfare agents and toxic substances are detected. 

The enhanced M4A1 JCADs provided to the U.S. military are manufactured in Smiths Detection’s facility at Edgewood, Md. Serving as the main U.S. manufacturing site for X-ray and a range of chemical warfare detection systems, Edgewood employs nearly 230 people and was recently expanded to help meet continued demand for the JCAD program.
