I-SCAD

I-SCAD® detects, classifies, and identifies particles in a chemical agent cloud, by type, while discriminating against both natural and man-made interferents. Once detection is made, I-SCAD® identifies the agent cloud and alerts operators with audible and/or visual alarms. It also indicates the direction and extent of an agent cloud on a graphical computer display and forwards the sensor information through external communication networks. The I-SCAD® can furnish 360-degree, on-the-move coverage for a detection range of up to 5 kilometers.
