Smiths Detection has completed the worldwide launch of its Lightweight Chemical Detector (LCD), for non-military personnel operating in high-risk situations.

The LCD, originally developed to meet stringent military requirements, is available for use by emergency responders, including law enforcement officers and other civil sector specialists. Compact and rugged, it adds a layer of protection against the presence of chemical warfare agents and toxic industrial chemicals.

Stephen Phipson, group managing director of Smiths Detection, said: “The LCD is a highly-sensitive product, already employed by armed forces and in training facilities around the world. These wearable detect-to-warn devices automatically alert emergency responders to the presence of harmful chemicals.”
