Detectors, Environmental, Chemical Agent, Telemetric, Air-Drop Sonde
Definition : Telemetric chemical agent detectors designed for automated detection and/or identification of hazardous chemical agents (e.g., nerve and/or blister agents, toxic industrial agents) using a sensor that is attached to a sonde that can be dropped from an aircraft. These detectors may use one or more technologies, including surface acoustic waves; they usually transmit the information through a VHF or UHF link. Chemical agent detection air-drop sondes are used to provide a characterization and/or advanced warning of the risk of chemical contamination of the environment in an operational area before healthcare rescue, or military personnel are deployed. Most detectors can provide additional information about the meteorological atmospheric conditions.
