DCH Technology Inc. (Valencia, CA) announced that the DCH H2SCAN sensor system that utilizes the DCH hydrogen sensor passed five key elements of the MIL-STD-810C specification and has cleared the last hurdle for its use in military systems worldwide. A major defense contractor required validation for the five elements as a condition to purchasing the H2SCAN sensor system. Two units of the system have already been shipped to the customer and DCH is anticipating sales of up to 100 identical systems over the next year.

"Passing this specification is a key milestone in our sensor's sales strategy,” said John Donohue, DCH president and CEO. “It opens the military market for DCH, where we are poised for significant growth. It also sends a very strong signal to other industries that DCH has state-of-the-art technology for sensing hydrogen that will survive demanding applications. As we incorporate this validation into our marketing efforts, we believe it will open new doors for us in the nuclear, semiconductor and petrochemical markets.”
