Bruker has been awarded a contract to deliver 133 RAID M-100 hand-held chemical detectors to the U.S. National Guard, the company announced.
For deliveries through March 2018, the 133 RAID M-100 units upgrade and enhance the capabilities of the National Guard Homeland Response Force (HRF) and of the CBRNE Enhanced Response Force Package (CERFP). The RAID M-100s will replace older Chemical Agent Monitor (CAM) detectors that have been in service for many years.
RAID M-100 are based on Bruker’s ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) technology. The fast, sensitive and reliable response of the new RAID M-100 detectors will enhance mission capabilities of these strategic National Guard units, which are vital to national defense.
Mr. Frank Thibodeau, Vice President for Business Development for Bruker Detection Corporation, commented: “Bruker is very pleased to deliver this contract to such an important client, and it confirms our position as a key global supplier of chemical detection technologies for homeland security. Our RAID M-100 detectors are already in service with the National Guard Civil Support Teams (CST) nationwide.”
