XRD Explosives Detection +
Explosives Detection Down to The Molecular Signature

A New Standard in Checked Baggage Screening

The XRD 3500 is the first system worldwide which reached ECAC certification for standard-3 EDS following EU regulation 1448/2006. The XRD 3500 system is a further development of the XES 3000 explosives detection system (EDS) based on X-ray diffraction (XRD) technology, which identifies materials based on their molecular composition.

The XRD 3500 system offers the additional capability of localized screening to inspect areas of bags identified as suspect by previous screening equipment. The XRD 3500 system uses alarm location data, acquired from bag images collected by an EDS positioned earlier in the baggage handling system (BHS), to focus on a subsection of the bag.

This ability to focus on a limited threat area greatly increases the throughput of the XRD system. The XRD 3500 system is designed to resolve alarms from other explosives detection systems without depending on operators and other time-consuming procedures. This can result in a significant increase in overall detection rates and reduced processing time for passenger baggage, while greatly reducing operating costs
