Pilot-M Explosive Detector

Listed in Explosive Detectors

Timely detection of explosives, explosive objects and revealing of explosion organizers has a great significance for prevention of terrorism acts. It can be done by checking clothes, hands and things of a suspect. If there are any elements of explosives, they will be detected. Usually dogs and large complicated equipment are used for these operations however this circumstance does not allow of checking suspect object to be effective.

All explosive detection operations may be easily realized using portable explosive vapor detector “PILOT-M”.

It has unique technical specifications and can detect both vapors and track quantity of explosives indoors and at any means of transport (cars, planes, rail-way, and ships). Detection is ensured by taking air samples from inner space of inspected objects and their subsequent analysis. Remote trier with grid thickener (part of delivery set) allows to take samples in dusty and smoky areas.
Moreover, there is a method of taking samples by special napkins, which are later warmed up in a sample heater, which also is added to a delivery set.

The list of substances which could be detected by Pilot-M:

Nitroglycerine (NG), EGDN, trinitrotoluene (tol, trotyl, TNT), PENT (tetranitrapentaerythrit, pentaerythrittetranitrate, Pentrit, PETN), hexogen (RDX), oktogen (HMX), tetryl (Tetril), threeacetonethreeperoxide (Cyclethreeacetonethreeperoxide, TATP) and nitrocellulose powders, engaging mixing explosives on their ground: Semtex and other plastic and elastic explosives on the basis of RDX, PENT or their mixture, В-type compositions (ТГ-20, ТГ-40, ТГ-60, ТГ-80, МС, ТГАФ)*, С-type (С1, С2, С3, С4, ПВВ-4*, ПВВ-5А*, ПВВ-7*, ПВВ-12М*, ЭВВ-11*, ЭВВ-32* and etc.), Н-6, HBX, Minol-2, Amatol (ammatol, ammonite, 6-ЖВ*), Primacord, Primasheet, Tetritol, Tritonal, Cordit N, А-IX-1, А-IX-2, А-IX-20, octols*, ocfols* and some other mixing explosives.

* - explosives of Russian origin

The device construction and analysis algorithms provide high selectivity and noise reduction.

In contrast to analogue equipment Pilot-M doesn't contain radioactive source and is absolutely safe for operator and environment. Therefore, there are no limitations for purchasing, keeping, transporting, and utilization of the device. Main parts and its design are protected by four patents for development and one patent for industrial sample.

Special software allows comparing registered spectrum to typical spectrum of pure and mixed explosives and sending it to a remote PC.
