Explosives Trace Detection
Available from L-3 Security & Detection Systems
L-3’s innovative energetic materials detection (EMD) technology represents a paradigm shift for screening trace amounts of explosives. Departing from conventional ion mobility spectrometer (IMS) detection devices, L-3’s EMD-based explosives trace detection products do not require carrier gases or dryer consumables, radioactive sources or reference libraries. This technological breakthrough results in immediate operator benefits, including significantly lower operating costs, an inherently safer product that does not require radioactive wipe testing, and an intrinsic capability to detect new or evolving explosive compounds without having to update reference libraries.
