LCD 3.2E

Lightweight Chemical Detector LCD 3.2E is designed to act as a local warning alarm for individuals and small groups of soldiers. Also known as JCAD (Joint Chemical Agent Detector). LCD 3.2E can be hand-held or attached to an individual’s clothing. The product is designed to provide a miniaturized personal detector, retaining the sensitivity and speed of response characteristics associated with larger IMS instruments. [Note: this product is available from the vendor but is not being actively marketed; functionally superseded by the LCD 3.3.]
