In an essential step forward for combat preparedness and operational readiness, soldiers from two U.S. Army brigades have begun testing the Stryker Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Reconnaissance Vehicle Sensor Suite Upgrades (SSU).

The test, executed under real-world conditions in West Fort Cavazos, Texas, underscores the U.S. military’s commitment to adapt and innovate in response to diverse threats on the battlefield.

The Significance of the Stryker SSU

The Stryker SSU is a prime example of integrating modern technology into traditional combat vehicles. The primary role of the SSU is to support warfighters by conducting NBC (Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical) surveys on the battlefield. 

This Stryker variant, equipped with a state-of-the-art CBRN detection system, locates explicitly, identifies, and reports NBC contamination efficiently. It provides commanders with crucial information in real-time.
