LONDON, Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Britain's Ministry of Defense reports it has received state-of-the-art simulators for training to counter CBRN threats.
The simulators, manufactured by British manufacturer Argon Electronics, includes instrumentation, simulation software and the advanced PlumeSIM wide area CBRN field exercise and desktop training system.
PlumeSIM enables instructors to manage multiple remote simulator instruments under a configurable virtual plume over user-selected mapping.
The systems were delivered to the Defense Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Center by Argon on schedule and within budget, the ministry said.
"Acquisition of this latest equipment is an important step for the CBRN training center, providing our trainers with a range of sophisticated tools that allow us to simulate a wide range of threat scenarios," said Phil Strudley, the CBRN protection leader at the Defense Equipment and Support organization.
"The equipment was specified, ordered and delivered within 16 weeks. This shows what can be achieved with a good working relationship between our DE&S team and a specialized U.K. manufacturer."
