Implant Sciences’ Explosives Trace Detection Method Receives IP Protection in Russia

Implant Sciences, a global provider of sophisticated sensors and systems for the security and defense markets, has advanced its intellectual property (IP) protection for its explosives trace detection system.

The Russian Federation’s Patent Office has awarded a patent to the company related to a method involving its patented non-contact vortex attractor technology that can be used for increasing the quantity of explosive materials collected from a surface.

The Vice President of Technology at Implant Sciences, Todd Silvestri stated that the company’s Quantum Sniffers had the capability to detect various types of trace explosives without having any sort of physical contact between the items or persons being inspected and the explosive detecting device. The non-contact method of collecting samples has numerous benefits. During screening of passengers, the device helps protect the privacy of the person. The method also allows other operational concepts that cannot be performed through conventional wipe techniques. The new Russian patent is helping the company extend its IP protection covering its novel non-contact sampling technologies.

The COO of Implant Sciences, Dr. William McGann stated that the developments made by the company formed the basis for its future explosives trace detection technology.

The Russian Ministry of Transportation had in 2007 certified the company’s Quantum Sniffer QS-H150 and deployed the system at the Sheremetyevo International Airport in Moscow. The BRIC countries comprising Brazil, Russia, India, and China form the second largest consumer of defense goods. When compared to other countries, the spending for defense purposes is expected to increase considerably.
