FIDO X3 – Explosives detector (including Peroxides and Nitrates)
Building on the success of the hundreds of Fido detectors fielded in U.S. Airports, the Fido X3 was designed with transportation security in mind. At less than 1.5kg, the newly redesigned Fido X3 is the lightest and most sensitive Handheld Explosives Trace Detector on the market.
With its magnesium case and splash-proof seal, the Fido’s ruggedized design meets the rigorous MIL-STD 810-G specifications. The Fido X3 has an 8 hour battery, starts from cold in under 5 minutes, and clears in seconds, so you spend less time waiting and more time sampling.
The Fido X3 adds broad threat detection including Ammonium Nitrate, TATP, and emerging liquid threats like Hydrogen Peroxide and Nitromethane. With FLIR’s exclusive Sensing Element technology, the detection channels can be controlled to alert on the threat materials you care most about.
Fido explosives detectors utilize proprietary amplifying fluorescence polymers (AFP) to detect trace levels of explosive materials in parts per quadrillion (ppq). This level of detection is comparable to that of highly trained explosives detection canines, the gold standard in explosives detection technology. Unlike the alternative, the exquisite sensitivity of the Fido supports detection of both explosive vapor and particulates without the need to modify the system in any way. This unique design enables previously unheard of functionality for explosives detection equipment.
