RedWave Technology FTIR Hazmat ThreatID GLS

ThreatID: Advantages for Explosives Identification

  • Providing an expanded Explosives library database covering:

      • HME’s

      • Degraded Explosives

      • Reaction mixtures

  • No sample heating with infrared measurement

  • Identify liquids from headspace

      • Precursors

      • Reaction mixtures

      • Minimize exposure

Comprehensive Analysis

Primary Search: Provides the closest match to the entire sample. This works best with pure materials, consumer products, and mixtures as:

  • C4
  • Semtex
  • HME’s
  • Degraded explosives
  • Reaction mixtures

Automated Mixture Search: The list of materials that most closely match the sample when added together. Each material is featured with a sum of components shown with a relative contribution to the overall mixture.  If you have a gas phase mixture or a mixed solid, this is a way to pull apart the individual so you can see the hazards of the individual components.

Functional Group Analysis: Confirm a library hit to gain confidence and back up the results that your search has provided. Confirm another material is not present and seek general information about each functional group

See ThreatID Identify Unknown explosives

The innovative ThreatID quickly identifies unknown threats providing the information you need to address any hazardous chemical situation, which increases both responder and community safety.

In the following video, RedWave Technology demonstrates how the ThreatID can be utilized in sampling an unknown powder to simulate in-field situations that an explosives responder would face. 

Whether a situation is dangerous or innocuous, the onboard chemical identifier ThreatAssist is always present on the system. From the data collection hit, this allows us to visually determine the associated hazards of what chemicals or mixture components are present.
