Year Founded:

Argon simulation systems are designed and developed using a proprietary common technology platform, and recognition of the validity of this integrated approach to instrumented training has been evidenced by supply to many of the foremost organisations in this arena, and the need to double the size of our premises in 2006.

30 years of innovation in CBRNe simulators

By combining strong relationships with many of the leading detector manufacturers with the development of versatile new platforms for professionals responsible for delivery of the highest standards in training, Argon offers the assurance of safe and cost effective training for which there is no alternative.

Argon has been at the forefront of CBRNe and Hazardous material simulator design and manufacture for in excess of 25 years. Privately held and based in the United Kingdom, Argon’s substantial Intellectual Property portfolio has enabled it to develop world class simulation systems that have transformed CBRN and HazMat training for our customers.

Relationships with leading detector manufacturers

The company has a strong relationship with many of the world’s leading detector manufacturers enabling its products to meet the highest levels of simulation fidelity. Our high regard for quality and the environment, demonstrated by our ISO9001 and ISO14001 accreditation and support of different charities through the years is testament to our sense of corporate social responsibility.

The technology Argon employs, and the manner in which it is employed is unique, in that the actual detection characteristics of each detector are replicated, enabling multi substance, multi detector training to take place in a safe, environmentally friendly manner.

We consider ourselves world leaders in our field, and strive through technical innovation and excellent customer service to maintain that position.
