Increased Efficiency and Safety for Hazard Detection
Apr 11 2016
A new handheld system that identifies hazardous materials through non-metallic sealed containers and applicable for Hazmat incident management, military EOD, first response, search & law enforcement and screening at ports & borders, was presented by Cobalt Light Systems.
Resolve uses proprietary spatially offset Raman spectroscopy technology to detect and identify chemicals through opaque non-metallic barriers such as coloured and non-transparent plastics, paper, card, sacks, fabric and glass. Measured spectra are accurately matched to comprehensive on-board spectral libraries. The system is capable of identifying materials including; explosives and precursors, hazardous and toxic materials, chemical agents, narcotics and new psychoactive substances, plus thousands of benign chemicals. Resolve’s matching algorithm identifies individual chemicals as well as mixtures.
Also introduced was the Insight200M, a new Liquid Explosive Detection System that uses the same principles of operation as the highly successful Insight100M, which is currently deployed at more than 70 airports globally including eight out of ten of Europe’s largest hubs. Insight200M, developed with support from the US Government and Innovate UK, has been tested by ECAC and has met the requirements for Type B Standard 3 and Type A Standard 3.
