Sensors & Electronic Systems

About Us

Chemring Sensors & Electronic Systems (CSES), part of Chemring Group PLC, is organized into three operating units:

  • NIITEK, a Chemring company since 2008, is the world leader in the design, development and production of Counter-IED ground penetrating radar (GPR) systems. NIITEK’s combat ready GPR systems are on the leading edge of mine detection technology and have been successfully used by US and Coalition forces worldwide. The scalable GPR systems are designed for roads and paths, can be adapted to a wide variety of vehicles, robotically controlled or hand-held. Current customers include the US Army and Marine Corps. 
  • Chemring Detection Systems, Inc. (CDS) is a global leader in chemical, biological, explosives and narcotics threat detection and identification systems. CDS is the supplier for two major U.S. military vehicle-mounted detection systems: the Joint Biological Point Detection System (JBPDS) and the Joint Service Lightweight Standoff Chemical Agent Detector (JSLSCAD). Our industry-leading experience developing advanced sensors and detection systems for the U.S. military has enabled us to expand our capabilities to meet the demands of the homeland security market and international customers.
  • 3d-Radar specializes in 3-dimensional, step-frequency radar technology and multi-channel antenna design. 3d-Radar commercial and military applications include: Road Pavement Inspection/Analysis, Aircraft Runway Inspection/Analysis, Bridge Inspection/Analysis, Railroad Ballast Inspection/Analysis, Utility Mapping, Archaeology, Tunnel & Cache Detection and Military landmine and Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Detection. As a service provider, 3d-Radar works in partnership with our customers and subject matter experts to conduct surveys and analysis for a variety of municipalities, engineering services firms, transportation regional authorities, and rail companies, to name a few.

Chemring Sensors & Electronic Systems is leveraging its high technology capabilities to expand into adjacent markets. The cyber arena, in particular, presents natural growth opportunities in the areas of critical infrastructure for airports, railways, seaports, borders, utilities, and mining. Chemring North America can also provide solutions to management challenges, such as network security, in the finance, healthcare and, potentially, consumer electronics markets. Additionally, law enforcement and facility security needs can utilize CNA's emerging technologies.
