The Chemical Agents Sensors (Chem) project website contains general project information and draft documents available for industry review.
The Canadian Forces (CF) must be prepared to survive and operate in a Chemical, Biological, Nuclear and Radiological (CBRN) environment. The international community has made progress in reducing the proliferation of chemical agents, but the remaining sources combined with the widespread availability of toxic industrial chemicals (TIC) that can be also be used offensively as weapons continue to be a threat to CF personnel committed to international and domestic operations.
The Chem project will provide the CF with a modern capability to detect, monitor, sample and identify chemical agents and TIC.
The Chem project will field the following modern chemical sensors and related systems:
Each of these systems will be rolled out with a complete initial support package, including training, maintenance and ILS.
