Each laboratory is realized within a ISO 20ft stainless-steel shelter (for proper decontamination) suitable to be transported by road, rail, air or sea.
Each module is independent from other shelters or infrastructures; nonetheless, two or more laboratories can be mechanically connected to extend the operational capabilities.
Each laboratory can be used in any operation area or climate, including CBRNe-contaminated environments, as they are quipped with air conditioning systems, ventilation, CBRN filtering (for both incoming and outgoing air).
Operational safety is realized establishing a pressure gradient spanning the three rooms (anteroom, emergency decontamination shower, lab area) within each module; interlocked access door contribute to maintaining the gradient ensuring safety for operators as well as for the environment.
The autonomy is assured for up to 72 hours.
The R/N module is equipped with analysis instruments & accessories integrated in the shelter in order to identify and quantify virtually any kind of environmental radiation. Equipment is capable of discriminating natural (background, medical) radiation.
The C module performs detailed chemical analytic analysis and identification of unknown substances, expanding its capabilities to those of a fixed laboratory and well over what pertains to the detection, identification and monitoring (DIM) of CWAs (Chemical Warfare Agents) and TICs/TIMs (Toxic industrial Compounds/ Toxic industrial Materials).
The B module is engineered to the full extent of BSL-3 (BioSafety Level 3).
Each module of the tactical laboratory is equipped with a fibre-optic network and an integrated radio system (C3 System), allowing voice and data exchange between laboratories and/or command posts and/or vehicles/soldiers.
Data fusion - embedded software processes information on hazardous substances localization and distribution, integrating with weather data, predicting evolution of the threat and mapping relevant information on-screen.
Reporting software (military standard) ensures inte- gration/interfacing with C2 CBRN SW.
