X-Ray & Explosives Detection Technology
Particle & Vapor Analysis
Smiths Detection's IONSCAN 500DT (pictured) and Multi-Mode Threat Detectors (MMTD) are being used to check hand luggage for traces of explosives immediately before passengers board flights heading to the United States. The detectors, one desktop and the other hand-held, provide particle and vapor analysis by using Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) technology, detecting both explosives and narcotics from a single sample. Rugged design and portability enable the systems to be moved easily to different boarding areas.

X-Ray Diffraction-Based EDS
Morpho Detection Inc.'s XRD 3500 X-ray Diffraction-based explosives detection system (EDS) can accurately distinguish explosives from non-threat materials in luggage without the need to open the bag or remove its contents. The unit's low false alarm rate results in a simplified inspection process. The technology identifies materials based on their molecular composition, not densities or other less distinctive characteristics. As a result, the unit can identify potentially threatening substances in many forms, including powders, solids and liquids. The device recently passed testing to meet European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) Standard 3 technical specifications, the requirement for complying with the European Union's Standard 3 for hold baggage screening.
