The WSB Academy in Dąbrowa Górnicza participated in the consortium creating an innovative, on site system for detecting trace amounts of explosives. The product was created as part of a project financed under Programs and Projects for State Security and Defense.
The system enables non-contact measurement of traces of explosives – for example at airports. The sample analysis time is 5 seconds, the total examination time for 1 person lasts approximately15 seconds. The advantage of the invention is an open library, with particular emphasis on improvised explosives, the use of a proprietary detector with very high sensitivity and quite good selectivity, and an open design that enables easy implementation during the travelers’ check-in.
The project consortium includes the WSB Academy, Military Institute of Chemistry and Radiometry (leader); Military Institute of Armament Technology; Transfer of Technology and WIMECH SC companies.
