Smiths Detection has supplied the Pittsburgh UASI Urban Area Working Group with 15 SABRE 5000 handheld trace detectors, first used to help protect attendees and participants at the Pittsburgh Marathon last month.

The SABRE 5000 is one of the smallest, lightest tri-mode handheld systems available for detecting trace amounts of explosives, chemical warfare agents, toxic industrial chemicals or narcotics.

Its miniaturized detection technology is programmed to detect and identify over 40 threat substances in about 20 seconds, including common chemicals often used in Improvised Explosive Devices and Home-Made Explosives.

James Viscardi, Smiths Detections Vice President, U.S. Critical Infrastructure & Emergency Response, said, The SABRE 5000 is one of our leading solutions that provides a critical layer of security at major events. It can help security authorities identify even trace elements of explosives on suspicious persons or packages in just seconds, helping to enhance event safety.

The SABRE system is widely used to help protect the worlds critical infrastructures, ports and borders, transportation systems and military bases and now is increasingly offered by Smiths Detection for event security.
