Next Generation Chemical Detector

The Next Generation Chemical Detector (NGCD) is an adaptable, handheld chemical monitor. It can be trained to respond to a broad range of chemical hazard scenarios and can be easily integrated with other sensors (e.g., RAD & BIO) and third-party systems. In particular, the NGCD detection database has been expanded to include an extensive range of Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs). It uses a non-radioactive ionization source.
