Smiths Detection has received a $42 million follow-on production order from the U.S. Department of the Army for Chemical Biological Protective Shelters (CBPS) to equip the National Guard.
CBPS systems are mobile medical shelters — designed to military specifications — highly resistant to chemical and biological threats. They provide a chemical/biological agent free environment in which to administer healthcare without the need for protective clothing and act as a safe haven for patients. CBPS systems are manufactured at Smiths Detection’s U.S. headquarters in Edgewood, Maryland.
This video provides a brief overview of some of the key benefits of the Smiths Detection Chemical Biological Protective Shelter Model E1 (CBPS-M8E1). This highly mobile, self-contained collective protection system provides a contamination free, environmentally controlled working area for medical combat services, combat service support personnel and emergency response teams to work freely without continuously wearing chemical-biological protective clothing.
