Smiths Detection Launches Elite Chemical Identifier

Smiths Detection recently launched HazMatID Elite, the only explosives, chemical warfare agents, toxic industrials and narcotics identifier certified to the strictest military standard for use in the most extreme climates.

The Elite is the next generation of Smiths Detection’s HazMatID, the most widely used field-portable Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR) solid and liquid identifier. Ten times smaller and four times lighter than the original, it uses innovative sampling techniques for reliable determination of suspicious powders plus direct surface contaminant analysis and robotics integration.

Mal Maginnis, President of Smiths Detection, said: “As the only chemical identifier able to provide actionable data and easy-to-use chemical analysis tools, HazMatID Elite maximizes the reach of miniaturized and ruggedized FT-IR field technology. Combined with Smiths Detection’s renowned customer service and support, it provides unrivalled support for military personnel and first responders in critical missions around the world.”

HazMatID Elite’s enhanced functionality includes an intuitive interface and self-guided software as well as encrypted wireless communications in support of down range operations. Personnel can train to use the system in under an hour, far less time and resources than required for comparable equipment.
