Thales innovates to protect the foot soldier with the portable biodosimeter


CBW symposium, Stockholm, Thales innovates to protect soldiers by launching BioWARD, a personal chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) detection solution. BioWARD is a portable biodosimeter capable of continuously collecting the biological substances absorbed by foot soldiers to minimise as quickly as possible the impact of any contamination on their health.

Used as a Threat Detector, this new personal sampler continuously collects air particles on a filter. Combined with identification devices, BioWARD rapidly detects biological or radiological contamination. The health services are then informed as soon as possible to minimise the impact of contamination on foot soldiers. In the event of suspected pathogenic agents in the field, this innovative solution offers line managers an initial means of exposure evaluation.

BioWARD meets the need for better protection of troops against the increasingly widespread threats they face in the various theatres of operations.

Thanks to its ease of use, its low cost and adapted ergonomics, BioWARD can be widely used in the theatre of operations, but also in an urban environment by the fire brigade and police.

BioWARD has competitive advantages, it has a greater range than the other products of the market, its results are easy to interpret as they can be analysed by all the identification devices and, lastly, the substance collection is entirely representative of the need for human protection.

Throughout Europe, Thales offers solutions to detect, identify and predict chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) threats in order to delimit high-risk areas. Its solid know-how in the field of CBRN technology and its position as world leader in critical system integration make Thales a recognised player in this field.
