Australian Defence Force (ADF) has selected Bertin Technologies’ second Sight MS standoff detector of chemical threats to equip its troops.

“The Second Sight is composed of different modules, providing it with unrivalled flexibility of use and versatility as well as compactness, deployability and operability,” said Romain Verollet, Manager in charge of the Defence & Security product range in a statement last week.

“Another key advantage of our equipment is its ability to detect unexpected chemical threats in an asymmetric warfare scenario, no matter which is the type of gas used or the location of its dispersal,” he added.

The Second Sight MS is a remote gas-detection system employing an infrared sensor in real-time and designed to detect threats such as chemical warfare agents or toxic industrial gases.

Second Sight MS permits the stand-off detection, identification and full visualization in real time of a gas cloud at ranges up to 5 km.

The equipment has been certified by third party agencies as conforming to the requisite standards for military use in terms of its capacity to detect chemical warfare agents, water-and dust-proofing (IP standard), electromagnetic compliance (CEM) and resistance to vibration and shock (Mil-Std 810).

Hence it is possible to gain the advantage of early warning of a chemical threat and to gather all the data needed to manage the attack: type of gas, location of source, extent and spread of contamination.
