Joint Service Lightweight NBC Reconnaissance System (JSLNBCRS)

JSLNBCRSThe JSLNBCRS will provide point and standoff intelligence for real-time field assessment of NBC hazards. The system is a vehicle-mounted suite of equipment and software designed to detect, collect, analyze, mark, and disseminate NBC data. Two variants, the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle and the Light Armored Vehicle, will house the same equipment and offer on-the- move, standoff capability, while providing an air-transportable system. Timely provision of automated, digital information meshed with meteorological and positioning information will provide commanders more options in merging NBC information with tactical, operational, and strategic plans.
