KeDetect CW SICAS

The KeDetect CW SICAS (Ship Installed Chemical Alarm System) is a ship-powered CWA biosensor that uses immobilized enzymes as the sensing technology. The vendor claims the SICAS can detect all known and unknown nerve agents, including Novichok and FTA variants. Limits of detection are sub-miosis level. Also detects attack concentrations of hydrogen cyanide (HCN). The vendor literature does not provide details of the sensing technology used in this product.
