Implant Sciences, a high technology provider of systems and sensors for defense and homeland security markets, recently declared that it has shipped its Quantum Sniffer QS-H150 handheld explosives detectors to its African customers in the areas of Uganda, the Republic of Mali, and Nigeria.
Through this recent commercialization, Implant Sciences can expand into the African continent serving a wide variety of applications in hotel, banking, and aviation security markets. With the system's superior performance in detecting explosive compounds in outdoor environments, the QS-H150 has found to be effective for hotel security.
According to President and CEO of Implant Sciences, Glenn D. Bolduc, although prone to frequent terrorist attack, Africa progresses with economic growth and development. The company witnesses increasing interest for security products in the regions of developing countries such as the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and at present in Africa. With the help of its channels, the company steadily expands into Africa and anticipates a stronger grip in this market.
The Quantum Sniffer QS-H150 is a Mobility Spectrometry-based (IMS) handheld explosives trace detector Ion that can quickly identify trace amounts of extensive commercial, military, and homemade explosives. The QS-H150 does not use any radioactive material. Its low-maintenance design is self-calibrating and self-clearing and ensures extreme levels of operational availability.
The May 2011-launched Quantum Sniffer QS-B220 is a Ion Mobility Spectrometry-based (IMS) benchtop explosives and narcotics trace detector, capable of rapidly detecting trace amounts of narcotic substances along with various military, commercial, and homemade explosives. The QS-B220 is void of radioactive materials. It offers low total cost of ownership with high operational availability.
