Simulators, Environmental Detector/Monitor, Chemical Agent
Definition : Simulators designed to mimic detectors and/or monitors of environmental chemical agents such as industrial toxic chemicals (e.g., ammonia, nitric acid, phosgene, formaldehyde), nerve agents (e.g., tabun, sarin, VX), and/or blister (vesicant) agents (e.g., mustard, lewisite). Some of these simulators have recording systems that can store error messages showing incorrect use by the operator or other abnormal situations. These simulators are used to simulate chemical detectors and/or monitors during training, both for contamination detection and decontamination procedures, without using the real contaminants.
