Sensa-LINX provides an early warning and reporting capability for sensors to communicate detection, identification and geo-location data to a remote command post.

Sensa-LINX enables a 2-way communication between a C2 (command and control) post and remote sensors. The C2 operator is then able to interrogate and control the networked sensors remotely. The user interface provides information that indicates the sensor’s health status and allows the operator to carry out multiple actions.

The software can generating CBRN reports using an ATP 45 messaging format. In an alert the C2 software will generate an audible and a visual alarm. The C2 application will also display the agent identified and dosage.

When expeditionary forces require temporary perimeter protection, networked detectors can be strategically placed around the perimeter of the protected area. In the event of a CBRNE incident, Sensa-LINX will provide an early warning.

When used with dismounted soldiers, Sensa-LINX enables 2-way communications between handheld and wearable detectors and continuously transmits geo-referenced data to a nearby command post.
