German term or phrase: C-Spürgeräte
I know Spürgeräte means detectors but what can the C stand for? Possibly something to do with chemicals?

You areprobably working on something that has to do with the military/police/anti-terrorist outfits. Sensors that can detect biological and chemical weapons are a big deal these days

Carbon


Explanation:
This is just a guess, but I believe C is universal for Carbon/Kohlenstoff, i.e. in the periodic table.
