Chemical Agent Monitor (CAM)

The Chemical Agent Monitor (CAM) is a hand-held, automated device for monitoring chemical agent contamination on personnel and equipment similar to the ICAM. The CAM has two controls: an on/off push button switch and a mode select push button switch which selects the blister or nerve-agent mode of operation. The CAM detects vapors of chemical agents by sensing molecular ions of specific mobilities (time of flight) and uses timing and microprocessor techniques to reject inferences. It can detect and discriminate between vapors of nerve and blister agents and display the relative concentration. The Marine CAM also detects and discriminates between other agents.
