The 21st century soldier needs modern defenses against all threats, both visible and invisible. OwlSens-C provides this capability with rapid airborne threat detection of conventional Chemical Warfare Agents (CWAs) and high-threat Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs).
- Man portable
- Improved sensitivity
- Large detection library
Incorporating Owlstone’s unique chemical detection technology, the system offers the flexibility to provide both rapid alarms and improved sensitivity. OwlSense-C can be trained to respond to a broad range of chemical threats beyond just traditional CWAs and priority TICs. The system has been evaluated against a range of environmental test standards outlined in MIL-STD-810G.
OwlSens-C — Delivering Chemical Detection Capability to the 21st Century Soldier
Rapid airborne threat detection is a critical requirement in all Army, Navy, and Air Force operations. In addition to detecting conventional Chemical Warfare Agents (CWAs), OwlSens-C provides capability against a wide range of high-threat Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) at concentrations well below IDLH specifications.
Typical sensitivity at part per billion detection levels combined with inlet control for high dynamic range
The technology has double the analytical window of conventional ion mobility based systems
Chemical detection library covers both conventional CWAs and high-threat TICs. The database can be readily expanded to detect new and evolving threats
Easy integration of other sensor data and control of third party systems
Network and wireless connectivity for remote monitoring and operation
Ergonomic carry handle for man portability. Options available for vehicle mount and fixed site
Easy to Use
Operable by non-specialists with less than one hour's training.
No Hazardous Materials
System uses a non-radioactive (non-RAD) ionization source.
