Explosive vapour detector "Pilot-M"

Portable explosive vapour detector "Pilot-M" has unique specifications and can detect both vapours and trace quantities of explosives indoors and at any means of transport (cars, planes, rail-way, and ships).

Explosives vapour detection is ensured by assay collection from the inspected object surface or its inner space and subsequent analysis of these samples for the presence of typical componentry. Remote trier with grid thickener (part of delivery set) allows taking samples in dusty and smoky areas. Moreover, there is a method of taking samples by special sampling swabs, which are later warmed up in a sample heater, which is also is included in the delivery set.

Pilot-M allows detection of trace quantities of explosives based upon TNT, NG, PENT (PETN), RDX, HMX, Tetryl, cellulose nitrocompound gunpowders, including ones on their base:
SEMTEX (plastic and elastic explosives on RDX & PENT base or their medley), B-type compositions (??-20, ??-40, ??-60, ??, ????) * , C-type mix (C1, C2, C3, C4, ???-4, ???-5?, ???-7, ???-12?, ???-11, ???-32 etc) * , H-6, HBX, Minol-2, Amatol, Primacord, Primasheet, Tetritol, Tritonal, Cordit N, A-IX-1, A-IX-2, A-IX-20, explosives of Octols & Octols families and some other substances.

The device construstion and analysis algorithms provide high selectivity and noise immunity.

"Pilot-M" in contrast to analogous equipment doesn't contain radioactive source and is absolutely safe for operator and enviroment. Therefore, there are no limitations of purchasing, keeping, transportation, and utilization of the device.

Special software allows comparing registered spectrums to typical spectrums of pure and mixed explosives when sending them to a remote computer.

Distinctive features:
  • Combines high sensitivity, selectivity and noise immunity.
  • Wide range of detected explosives.
  • The operation threshold of the detector is adjustable depending on the surroundings.
  • Provides sound and visual (on the display) indication of the presence of explosive vapours.
  • Battery discharge indication.
  • Does not contain radioactive sources.
  • Does not require periodical adjustment and setup procedures.
  • Does not require special gas supply.
