The Quantum Sniffer QS-H150 is a hand-held explosives detector that rapidly detects and identifies trace amounts of a wide variety of military, commercial, and homemade explosives (HMEs). Its innovative design provides operational advantages that make it highly effective in real world detection situations – advantages proven time and again in customer evaluations.
The QS-H150 employs a patented heated vortex collector for the simultaneous detection of explosives particulates and vapours, with or without contact and in real-time. It also includes a patented non-radioactive ionization source and a low maintenance, contamination resistant design.
Implant Sciences recently signed a distribution agreement with PS, LLC, a US-based company with a representative office in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. PS’s customers include commercial organizations and governmental agencies. The distributor is a major provider of security systems and detection equipment for Uzbekistan Airways and all major airports in Uzbekistan. PS provides a full range of services for security applications including consulting, project development, installations, equipment launch, technical support, maintenance and staff training.
“In both air cargo and in airport passenger security, the QS-H150’s functionality is very well suited for flexible and continuous use. Our devices are gaining an increasing presence in the critical airport security market globally,” stated Glenn D. Bolduc, President and CEO of Implant Sciences.
Implant Sciences develops, manufactures, and sells sophisticated sensors and systems for Security, Safety, and Defence (SS&D) markets. The Company has developed innovative proprietary technologies used in its explosives and narcotics trace detection systems, which ship to a growing number of locations domestically and internationally. Implant Sciences products have been deployed in a wide range of security environments including airports, subways, railways, cargo facilities, nuclear power plants, police departments, military units, government buildings, and financial institutions. The QS-H150 and QS-B220 are Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technologies under the Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technology Act of 2002 (the SAFETY Act).
The Quantum Sniffer™QS-H150 is a handheld explosives trace detector that uses Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) to rapidly detect and identify trace amounts of a wide variety of military, commercial, and homemade explosives. The QS-H150 uses no radioactive materials and features a low-maintenance design that is self-calibrating and self-clearing, providing very high levels of operational availability.
The QS-B220, introduced in May 2011, is a benchtop explosives and narcotics trace detector that uses IMS to rapidly detect and identify trace amounts of a wide variety of military, commercial, and homemade explosives, plus narcotic substances. The QS-B220 continues the Implant Sciences tradition of freedom from radioactive materials, low total cost of ownership, and high operational availability.
