Hand Held Explosive Trace Detector


Explosives Trace Detector

The XD-2i explosives trace detector (ETD) enables rapid detection of all threat explosives and homemade explosives (HME) precursors on the Government and Military requirements list. This explosive detector that was originally designed for military operations is field portable, light weight and simple to use. Given its success on the battlefield, this explosive trace detector quickly became a sought after tool for law enforcement officers, first responders, high profile facility security personnel and for use in Government and Military laboratories.

The XD-2i requires no warm-up time, no calibration, and no clear-down delays after a positive detection. Requiring minimal training, this explosive detector detects invisible explosives residue (trace) off virtually any surface and can analyze unknown visible (small bulk) samples too; making it an effective tool for Counter Terrorism Operations. This hand held explosive detector helps expose people, vehicles and/or facilities involved in the manufacturing, assembly, storage, transportation and emplacement of Improvised Explosives Devices (IEDs).

Utilizing explosives detection chemistry and a precise heat / time profile, the XD-2i explosives detector detects and enables users to identify commercial, military and homemade (HME) explosives without false alarming on common confusants, interferents and masking agents. Analysis time ranges from instant to 30 seconds, with actual detection time depending on the explosive, explosives compound or explosives precursors detected. Identification of explosives is achieved with a Colorimetric Response Identification Chart.

The XD-2i has been extensively tested by Government and Military laboratories and is deployed with military EOD units, civilian (fire and police) bomb squads, post blast investigations teams, K9 units and first responders. Test reports and references are available to recognized Government and Military customers. This explosive’s detector weighs less than 2 pounds, has no export restrictions and is powered by eight (8) AA batteries, an AC power adapter or a DC cigarette lighter adapter.
