The Army is in the process of upgrading the sensor suite on its Stryker Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Reconnaissance Vehicles, according to a recent release. A recent demonstration at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, offered an audience of more than 50 people a look at the new suite of chemical sensors. The new package functions as a stand-alone, allowing it to be placed anywhere; it enables remote detection; and it can perform detection functions on the move. A prototype for the sensor suite package was developed in just 150 days. The demonstration at Aberdeen involved one NBCRV, one unmanned ground vehicle and one Humvee. Sensor packages were mounted on the first two vehicles, and one was also loaded on a trailer towed behind the Humvee. Further development and testing are planned before final design decisions are made. In May, the team of operators will showcase the NBCRV's capabilities at the Joint Warfighter Assessment 2019 in Washington state. Read more at Army.mil.
