Breakthrough Technology

Most significantly, ETD devices require efficient and accurate trace sampling in order to successfully detect explosives. Airport inspectors currently  collect these trace samples by hand through a process commonly known as swabbing - which presents many constraints, all associated with the limited reliability of human operation: Human factors such as insufficient training, low motivation or reduced alertness mean that manual sampling leads to inconsistent inspection by operators, who are prone to fatigue and errors in judgment .
Trace detectors require a sufficiently large amount of the suspect trace material - which is not always available with manual sampling - in order to enable the explosive detection
Manual Sampling is time consuming, so only a partial swabbing of the surface can be performed, (according to a prescribed procedure). Swabbing also carries a heavy logistical burden in addition to personnel-related costs, since it requires significant floor space, special tables and a separate area for the inspection team.

Explosive Detection – Current Limitations

TraceTech Security – Approved Technology

On average, one in three carry-on items passing through the X-ray is selected for manual inspection. The process itself is time and labor intensive and only checks specific parts of each bag (not the entire contents)

Big Problem – this process is Slow!

•Each inspected bag must be opened

•Every object should be swabbed

•Objects get moved

•Many bags are overloaded

•Contents fall on floor

•Privacy violated - complaints

•2-3 minutes per bag

•Inspectors are subject to:

•boredom

•distraction

•lack of concentration
