Smiths Detectionís Trace-Pro Now Detects TATP

Smiths Detectionís newly launched Trace-Pro, a non-radioactive hand-held explosive threat detector, now has the additional capability to detect and identify TATP (Triacetone Triperoxide), the explosive substance used in the terrorist attack in Brussels in March 2016.

 This much-needed capability will enable users of Trace-Pro to identify traces of TATP more easily and aid covert operations or security operators to screen people, objects and materials in any location.

Shan Hood, Vice President, Products & Technology, Smiths Detection, said, ďDue to its chemical makeup, TATP can be difficult to detect and Trace-Pro now provides an easy to use solution to identify this challenging substance. Since Trace-Proís launch in November 2015 we have seen considerable interest in customers wanting to use this advanced technology for a wide range of applications, including the military, police, airports and hotels.Ē

Trace-Pro can deliver a result in less than 10 seconds. Swabs can be taken from people, objects and materials in any location and the in-built camera and GPS facilitate easy evidence collection Ė allowing the user to record and store data in the immediate location of the suspect substance.

Trace-Pro weighs just 1.7 kg and can be powered by AA commercial batteries.

 It also requires minimal user training, and low cost of ownership through its re-usable swabs and basic maintenance requirements.
