CBRN vehicle for CWG

With security becoming a major concern during the upcoming Commonwealth Games, a UK-based chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) detection solution manufacturer has offered a reconnaissance vehicle for use during the major sports event in October this year.

Vasus, as the CBRN vehicle produced by the Tata’s in India is called, has been showcased during the ongoing Defence Expo.

“We have offered this vehicle, which can detect any leak of deadly chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear substances within a five-km radius, to the Home Ministry and the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) for use during the Commonwealth Games,” UK company Bruker Detection’s representative said here.

With the threat of terror groups laying their hands on CBRN substances to mount an attack on civilian population increasing in the recent years, the vehicle would come in handy to immediately detect such leaks and to contain it, he said.

UK Trade and Investment Defence and Security Organisation’s head Richard Paniguian said his country realised that the security threats faced by India, which is hosting the CWG this year, was similar to that of Britain, which would host the 2012 Olympics.

“Hence we have offered this vehicle, produced in India by Tata with British technological help to the Home Ministry and NDMA for use during CWG,” Paniguian said.
