Smiths Detection Launches TRACE-PRO™, a Revolutionary Explosives Detector for Fast Identification and Evidence Collection
Nov 17 15
Smiths Detection announced the launch of TRACE-PRO, a compact and ruggedised, non-radioactive Explosives Trace Detector (ETD) designed for mobile screening. TRACE-PRO takes the detection of trace explosives for Military, Emergency Response, Law Enforcement and Security professionals to a new level by providing fast, accurate identification of common explosives in less than 10 seconds. Swabs can be taken from people, objects and materials in any location and the in-built camera and GPS facilitate easy evidence collection – allowing the user to record and store data in the immediate location of the suspect substance. TRACE-PRO’s unique probe-based sampling technique and reusable swabs allow users to take quick consecutive samples to enhance the speed and efficiency of the screening operation. TRACE-PRO is suited to a variety of environments and situations with its ruggedised exterior - tested and certified to MIL-STD-810G. It is ergonomically designed, weighs 1.7 kg and is the only detector that can be powered by AA commercial batteries. It requires minimal user training due to its intuitive software and provides a low cost of ownership through its re-usable swabs and basic maintenance.
Smiths Detection Launches iCmore Automatic Detection Software for Cargo Inspection X-Ray Systems
Oct 27 15
Smiths Detection launches iCmore, an advanced software suite for the automatic identification of suspicious items or dangerous threats, concealed within vehicles and maritime containers. The software will allow border control officers to identify items such as cigarettes or dangerous levels of radioactivity precisely. iCmore assists security operators or customs officers by focusing their attention on any abnormalities within the load during the scanning process, to reduce guess-work and speed up analysis. It helps customs to recoup potentially valuable lost tax revenue. The software also lowers strain levels for operators by improving procedures and speeding traffic throughput. These upgrades are available for the range of powerful HCV cargo inspection systems produced by Smiths Detection. The iCmore software configurations will initially focus on cigarettes, radiation sources and the recognition of non-empty containers. Planned additions will help identify inconsistencies in the load and automatic targeting of expensive or heavy materials such as gold, lead or uranuim.
