Chemical warfare, or the accidental release of hazardous chemicals poses a real threat to societies around the world. Accurate monitoring and rapid alarming are critical to our defense. But traditional approaches often produce false alarms, leading to expensive, frightening and unnecessary evacuations.
MKS Instruments worked with a range of customers to solve this challenge. The result is our AIRGARD® ambient air analyzer, designed to rapidly and reliably detect a wider range of toxic gases with a significantly lower rate of false positives. The AIRGARD® is currently used by several major governments as a key defense, protecting critical government infrastructure.
