Explosives Detection

Appears in the issue.

Smiths Detection of Pine Brook, New Jersey, has launched a hand-held vapor detector for volatile chemicals commonly used in homemade bombs. The SABRE EXV uses the company’s ion mobility spectrometry technology in a lightweight device to detect and identify explosive substances, including peroxide-based chemicals, in as little at 10 seconds. Peroxide-based chemicals found in common household products have been used as the basis for many improvised explosive devices; they are easy to assemble and difficult to detect. This detector has been developed to specifically combat those threats.
