FORT HOOD, Texas — Soldiers from Fort Bragg, North Carolina, Joint Base Lewis-McCord, Washington, Marines from Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, and Airmen from Joint Base-Charleston, South Carolina, teamed here to test new chemical agent detection systems.

Warfighters from across the nation conducted operational testing of the new systems between October and November. Through these Warfighters’ efforts, data was collected for decision-makers, and valuable hands-on training was performed.

Soldiers with the 21st Hazard Response Company and 11th Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) Company, along with Marines from the 2nd Marine Logistics Group and Airmen from the 628th Civil Engineer Squadron, went hands-on with the Aerosol and Vapor Chemical Agent Detector (AVCAD) and the Multi-phase Chemical Agent Detector (MPCAD).
