Argon to showcase simulators at I/ITSEC tradshow

Argon Electronics announced on Friday it will demonstrate a range of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear hazardous material training simulators at the I/ITSEC tradeshow from Dec. 2 to 5 in Orlando, Fla.

"I/ITSEC is the world's largest modeling, simulation and training conference and thus an ideal venue for us to showcase how our CBRN simulators improve the efficiency of CBRN response training," Steven Pike, the managing director of Argon Electronics, said. "The whole purpose of the event is to provide the forces in the field with the very best of simulation technologies, and Argon's equipment is now globally renowned for enabling the organization and setting up of realistic exercises and training scenarios."

One of Argon's new products on display will be its CBRN/HazMat field exercise and table training software PlumeSIM. The program configures simulated chemical and radiological situations, which produce virtual plumes and hot spots for trainees to detect and control.

Argon Electronics will also be showcasing HazMat detector simulators, including training simulators that replicate user interfaces of real equipment to provide accurate training.

Argon Electronics was founded in 1987 and produces CBRN/HazMat defense simulators for civil response to terrorism, accidental release of chemicals, international treaty verification and nuclear energy generation and education.
