The numerous bombings of the past decade have heightened our nation's awareness of the need for explosive detection systems and devices. And, the Anthrax attacks of 2001 created significant concern in the area of chemical warfare. With the increased dedication to protecting both the homeland and international critical infrastructure, there are numerous new technologies on the market for explosive and chemical detection. These technologies are often integrated with access control solutions to prevent individuals with compounds, such as explosives, chemical warfare agents, narcotics and toxic industrial chemicals from entering a building. Two types of detection devices are explosive detection systems (EDSs), which are designed to detect large quantities of explosives based on physical dimensions and densities consistent with explosive materials; and explosive trace detectors (ETDs), which are used to detect vapor or particles of explosives. Most trace detectors today are ion mobile spectrometers (IMSs), which identify chemicals by ionizing the target molecules in the sample and then passing them through a drift space, where they are divided based on their mobility. It is widely believed that Mass Spectrometry (MS) will be more widely used in the near future as it has the capability to more quickly diagnose potential threats than other types of detection technologies on the market. Seenex is working with its partners to fully integrate MS capabilities in its offering of chemical and explosive detection systems.
