Lightweight, Trace Explosives Detection
At less than three pounds, the Explosive Detection System (EDS) is the world's most sensitive explosives detection system. Detects common military-grade compounds used in homemade explosives and IED's, including PETN.
Explosive Detection System (EDS) explosives detectors utilize proprietary amplifying fluorescence polymers (AFP) to detect trace levels of explosive materials in parts per quadrillion (ppq). This level of detection is comparable to that of highly trained explosives detection canines, the gold standard in explosives detection technology. Unlike the alternative, the exquisite sensitivity of the Explosive Detection System (EDS) supports detection of both explosive vapor and particulates without the need to modify the system in any way. This unique design enables previously unheard of functionality for explosives detection equipment.
The Explosive Detection System (EDS) can be configured in multiple formats to accommodate the needs of most explosives detection applications. The system includes a control unit and separate sensor head where actual explosives detection takes place. These two components can be connected directly for one-handed explosives detection operations or via tether for added maneuverability. In addition, the sensor head can be mounted for benchtop applications.
Due to its size and trace vapor detection capability, the Explosive Detection System (EDS) can be easily integrated as a payload onto robotic vehicles for remote explosives detection applications. Dependent upon the robot, this can be accomplished either by inserting the entire system onto the robotic platform or by attaching the sensor head to a robotic arm.
