First In­te­grated Na­tional CBRN Cen­tre Op­er­a­tional in Kuwait

India Strategic - - BOOK REVIEW -

KUWAIT. De­fence and se­cu­rity com­pany Saab has to­gether with their Kuwaiti part­ner Bader Sul­tan & Bros, de­liv­ered the world´s first in­te­grated na­tional CBRN ( Chem­i­cal, Bi­o­log­i­cal, Ra­di­o­log­i­cal and Nu­clear) cen­tre, which is now op­er­a­tional in Kuwait. The CBRN cen­tre is yet another in­no­va­tive so­lu­tion from Saab. It is the first cen­tre to cover a whole coun­try with fixed and mo­bile CBRN sen­sors and units, whilst also pro­vid­ing a unique ca­pa­bil­ity for sim­u­lated train­ing.

Dur­ing 2015, Saab de­liv­ered the AWR (Au­to­matic Warn­ing and Re­port­ing) sys­tem for the Kuwait Na­tional Guard. AWR is a flex­i­ble, mod­u­lar and fu­ture­proof so­lu­tion for the de­tec­tion, id e n t i f ica­tion, warn­ing, mon­i­tor­ing and re­port­ing of CBRN haz­ards. The sys­tem can be op­er­ated from fixed lo­ca­tions and car­ried by per­son­nel or mounted on ve­hi­cles. It helps the op­er­a­tor to make fast and ac­cu­rate de­ci­sions to limit the ef­fects of a CBRN at­tack and it is a key part of the na­tional CBRN cen­tre.

Saab, through a suc­cess­ful tri­an­gu­lar part­ner­ship with Bader Sul­tan & Bros and the Kuwait Na­tional Guard, has found a so­lu­tion for sup­port and train­ing, which has now re­sulted in the na­tional CBRN cen­tre.
