Military Uses for TraceX® Handheld Explosives Detector Kit

In an ever changing world, military personnel increasingly encounter explosive threats. The TraceX explosives kit can help you easily and reliably determine if explosive materials are present. Use the TraceX handheld explosive detection device to help identify bomb-makers and their bomb-making facilities.

Small enough to fit in a cargo pocket and integrated into a disposable protective plastic case, the TraceX handheld explosives detector kit is ready for real-world use in the field, even under very demanding situations. All major explosive materials are detected in a single swab. And, because the design keeps the user's hands away from the collector to minimize contamination, you can have confidence in the results. Handheld explosive detection has never been easier or more reliable.

EOD Units

Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) units are often called to high-stress scenes with suspect materials. The ability to safely and easily test for explosive material is critical.

The TraceX handheld explosive detector provides a simple, quick and reliable way to test for explosive chemicals and their precursors, with just one swab. And, for those times where you don't want to get too close to the suspect material, the TraceX collector can easily be mounted on a robot's arm to collect the sample, and bring it back for testing at a safe distance.

CBRNE Units

With expanding threats and limited budgets, many Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) teams now have added responsibility for explosive threats. As a result, CBRN has expanded into CBRNE.

With just one swab, the TraceX handheld explosive detection device detects all major explosives and their precursors. With minimal training, you and your team can be up and running with TraceX.

Special Ops

Army Special Forces, Navy SEALs and other special operations teams perform a variety of high-risk missions where identifying the presence of explosive material can be vital. In these cases, a handheld explosive detection device can save lives, and provide valuable intelligence.

The TraceX handheld explosives detector is easy-to-use, reliable and quick. It can help keep you and your team safe, and give you the information that you need.

Illicit Drugs

Teams conducting the fight against illicit drugs often encounter unknown powders. It's probably an illicit drug, but ruling out the potential for explosive material will keep you and your team safe.

The TraceX handheld explosives detector provides a simple, quick and reliable way to test for explosive chemicals and their precursors. With just one swab, TraceX lets you know if explosive materials are present.

Reconnaissance/SSE

When assessing or exploiting a sensitive location, it is critical to be able to detect the presence of explosive materials on the spot.

The TraceX handheld explosive detector provides a rugged, quick and easy method for detecting all major explosives and their precursors with just one swab. TraceX helps keep you and your team safe, while enabling you to complete your mission.

Forensics

Crime scenes are often complex and stressful. Field tools that provide an immediate answer can help to guide the analysis of the crime scene and provide useful presumptive information for investigators.

The TraceX hand held explosives detector is easy-to-use, quick and reliable. With just one swab, TraceX lets you test for all major explosive chemicals and their precursors.
