The ETD-100 on show at Land Forces 2022, Brisbane, Australia

A very busy three days for GreyScan’s Andrew Avenell with great interest in the ETD-100 at LAND FORCES 2022, October 4-6.

GreyScan attended LAND FORCES 2022 with our partner, Omega Dev Group, a key Australian and New Zealand government defence supplier.

As the only mobile Explosive Trace Detector capable of detecting inorganic substances commonly used in Home Made Explosives (HMEs), the ETD-100 attracted considerable interest from both domestic and international government departments, including Home Affairs and DFAT. Also, there was a steady stream of interest from a number of government suppliers, with Andrew continuing to field follow-up enquiries post-Expo.

LAND FORCES International Land Defence Expo is Australia’s largest defence industry exhibition and LAND FORCES 2022 was no exception.

Held in Brisbane, Australia from 4-6 October, LAND FORCES 2022 was the largest LAND FORCES Exposition ever, involving three days of record exhibitor numbers, extended visits from Chief of Army and Australia’s Assistant Minister for Defence.

Highlights of LAND FORCES 2022 included:

  • 20,000 total attendances across the three Days;
  • 128 Defence, government, industry and scientific delegations from 23 countries;
  • 11 Chief of Army Counterparts or their representative

GreyScan’s ETD-100 bridges a crucial capability need. While traditional explosive trace detection systems (e.g., IMS, etc.) are effective at detecting the organic compounds associated with classical threats such as military grade or commercial explosives, they are not suitable for detecting the inorganic compounds commonly used in HMEs. The ETD-100 is an essential element of any security risk minimisation plan.
