This notice concerns the establishment of a framework agreement regarding the acquisition of chemical detectors. The framework agreement will have a duration of 4 (four) years, with the possibility of renewal for a duration of 1 (one) year. DALO is procuring chemical detectors to secure that the Danish forces are able to detect Chemical War Agents (CWA) and Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TIC) when they are deployed in missions. Further, the chemical detectors are used for training for such operations. The chemical detectors will function as the units' primary detector for surveying the environment for chemical threats. By rapid and reliable point detection of vaporized CWA and TIC, the chemical detectors shall provide a decision foundation for the unit's protective measures. The protective measures shall ensure:
a) That the individual protective measures against CWA and TIC can be put on in due time, so the combat force is not affected by CWA or TIC;
b) That the individual and collective protective measures against CWA and TIC are not used unnecessarily, so the combat force is not diminished;
c) That the individual and collective protective measures against CWA and TIC can be called off as quickly as possible, so the combat force is not diminished unnecessarily.
The chemical detectors will be used both as a personal detector and as a remote detector. When used as a personal detector it will be carried by a soldier in the unit for surveillance of chemical threats in the environment. When used as a remote detector it will be mounted on a land vehicle or a warship, placed in the perimeter of a temporary camp or in the projected trajectory of a known contamination for surveillance of chemical threats in the environment. When the chemical detectors are used as a remote detector, point detection will be done separate from the personnel that are monitoring the detection. Further, when used as a remote detector DALO will integrate the detector with the Danish Defence Sensor Connectivity Information Management (SCIM), in order to transfer alarms and data of the detected chemicals to the Battle Management System (BMS) and CBRN-Analysis.
