Explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) equipment for quick explosives and chemical weapons detection

Make informed decisions while downrange

The explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) landscape is evolving. Homemade, improvised explosives, chemical threats, and locally manufactured ordnance items by terrorist organizations are growing concerns. EOD teams need to quickly identify potential explosive threats and detect chemical weapons to make informed decisions downrange on the target. We offer handheld Raman spectroscopy and FTIR chemical identification analyzers built for EOD teams, first responders and the military that give them actionable insights to disarm improvised explosive devices.

FTIR and Raman spectroscopy instruments acquire a spectral fingerprint of an unknown substance, and then compare the collected fingerprint against a reference library. Both methods are lab-proven, precise optical technologies offering distinct advantages in specific applications. Used together, FTIR and Raman spectroscopy provide a broader range of unknown substance identification—and better protection for the responder and the community.
