ICx Technologies’ sale of the Fido XT explosives detectors in the first quarter of 2010 has crossed $3.9 million.
These detectors will enable the U.S. military to counter improvised explosives devices (IEDs) in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Ever since 2005, these combat-tested detectors are utilized in forward military operations. The Fibo XT explosive detector received the U.S. Army’s top 10 Greatest Inventions award. This detector can detect very small traces of vapor and its weight is less than 3 pounds. ICx has supplied robot-mounted and handheld explosives detectors that are utilized against the IEDs and presently more than 2,400 units are utilized at home and abroad by the U.S. forces.
Military checkpoints and IED interdiction operations use the Fido explosive detectors range for screening vehicles and people. Colin Cumming, ICx Technologies’ CEO informed that ICx focuses on continually supporting the U.S. military as well as its allies by offering field-tested and most sensitive explosives systems.
