Smiths Detection Announces $20M Chemical Detector Order from US Army

Smiths Detection today announced a $20 million follow-on production order from the U.S. Army under the Department of Defense’s Joint Chemical Agent Detector (JCAD) program.

The JCAD is based on Smiths Detection's Lightweight Chemical Detector (LCD) product line of advanced, easy-to-use and lightweight threat detection devices that are handheld or easily strapped to a belt. The LCD is a cost-effective and reliable solution that protects military personnel, police and hazmat responders by alerting operators if toxic substances and dangerous chemicals are detected.

Tom Brown, Director of Business Development, Smiths Detection, said: “This order underscores the success of the LCD, which is used by weapon inspectors, civil responders and military forces worldwide. Equally so, the JCAD program has established itself as one of the most effective chemical warfare protection solutions for U.S. troops in history.”

The enhanced M4A1 JCADs provided to the U.S. military are manufactured in Smiths Detection’s facility at Edgewood, Md. which serves as the main U.S. manufacturing site for X-ray and a range of chemical warfare detection systems.
