GreyScan was invited by Scanna MSC (a UK company that specialises in counter threat screening and detection solutions) to join their booth and demonstrate the ETD-100 at the Counter Terror Expo (CTX) 2022.
CTX brings together security professionals from industry, infrastructure, government and policing.
The active ingredients that traditional Explosive Trace Detection technologies are designed to detect are carbon-based (organic) chemicals. However, ingredients traditionally used to make Home Made Explosives (HMEs) are generally inorganic (e.g. nitrates, chlorates and perchlorates), rendering traditional screening technologies ineffective against these.
The ETD-100 is the world’s first field deployable trace detector designed to detect the inorganic compounds commonly used in HMEs. The ETD-100 addresses an important capability gap and should be part of a combined and effective approach in reducing security threats.
