Fast, accurate and reliable detection of explosive compounds is critical for security professionals. Rapiscan has developed a hand-held explosives trace detection system, the Rapiscan HE50 to compliment field security operations in a easy-to-use and maintain system.
Rapiscan Trace Detection employs novel and patent-pending Ion-Mobility-Spectrometer technology (Ultra-IMS™) to offer real-time analysis and fast, reliable and specific identification of explosives. The hand-held Rapiscan HE50 is a versatile and mobile security solution for detecting a wide range of threatening explosives. The lightweight, ergonomically designed HE50 uses a non-contact inhalation sampling technology allows the operator to screen without contact, for all major explosives without damaging the interrogated surface. This means, that inspections can be performed faster and more efficiently therefore increasing throughput. Because no calibration traps, no verification traps, no membrane or grids are required, the Rapiscan HE50 consumable and maintenance costs are low.
