Bruker Daltronic has granted world-leading CBRN simulation systems manufacturer Argon Electronics the worldwide exclusive rights to develop and manufacture a training simulator for the high-performance Bruker RAID-M100 chemical detector.

The simulator will enable RAID-M100 users to experience the powerful features of this highly regarded detector, including its ability to specifically identify detected substances. RAID-M100-SIM will be capable of operation on a standalone basis, or with Argons’ PlumeSIM instrumented CBRN simulation system.

Argon Electronics managing director Steven Pike said, "We are delighted Bruker have selected Argon for this important simulation product. It underpins our important portfolio of simulators and confirms our position as work leaders in the field of CBRN simulation."

Bruker Detection Division president Sebastian Meyer-Plath commented, "Argon’s RAID-M100SIM will allow our customers to train under conditions as close to reality as you can possibly get without using chemical simulants. We are very pleased about the broad training capabilities that the RAID-100MSIM will provide to the worldwide RAID-M user community".

Argon Electronics was established in 1987 and has since become a world leader in the development and manufacture of hazardous material detector simulators, most notably in the fields of military chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) defence. Our simulators have applications from civil response to unconventional terrorism and accidental release, and international treaty verification, with a growing presence in the nuclear energy generation and education markets.
