Out of the various new items of kit that caught the editors eye in CBRNe Convergence was a little number from Force1 Decon. Force1 have previously been known for their rapid-erect personal decon stations, which were quite natty, and now they have come up with a lightweight mask mounted LED lighting system.

The system is designed to be used with Avon’s FM53, their ‘special forces’ respirator, and locks around the speech module and comes with a disable rocker switch for when inadvertent use might cause a problem. It provides 200 lumen of light, is devised for close and medium applications and has a runtime of 8 hours. Nice product, makes you wonder why no-one has done it before…
