This has prompted the Defense Industry to a continuous process of innovation and development of new CBRN decontamination systems and technologies, which ensure both maximum effectiveness in the decontamination process and the minimum response time in any type of scenario and with any type of Contaminant agent.
Rafael Arruga highlighted, on the other hand, the need for modular and flexible decontamination systems that allow maximum standardization of decontamination capabilities (as a key for minimum response time) and scalability and versatility in response capabilities before the wide range of scenarios that a Hazmat incident can present.
The meeting was a complete success, and the objectives set were fully fulfilled by creating this forum for mutual knowledge between the Armed Forces and the Defense Industry of the United Arab Emirates and Spain.
