US DHS Enters Agreement with One Resonance Sensors to Evaluate MobiLab® ES Checkpoint Security Scanner

The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) has signed an agreement valued at $3,003,383 with One Resonance Sensors, LLC (ORS) to evaluate the company's MobiLab® ES checkpoint security scanner, which detects explosives in electronic devices. The agreement funds the evaluation of the scanner at a number of government facilities in the US and Europe.

"MobiLab® ES provides a compact and powerful solution for screening electronic devices," said Dr. Pablo Prado, Co-founder and CEO of ORS. "We are very pleased to be working with DHS to evaluate our technology, which we believe will significantly increase airport security while minimizing passenger delays and disruptions."

The MobiLab® ES uses chemical-specific radio-frequency technology to provide safe and fast detection of concealed explosive materials. The screening system offers airport security checkpoints the ability to inspect electronic items for explosives in seconds without requiring the devices to be powered on.

Last summer, new emergency airport security measures were put in place to require travelers on selected flights to power up electronic devices as a part of the security screening process. The new measures slowed security checkpoints and inconvenienced passengers, who were delayed or forced to surrender their electronic items. MobiLab® ES now offers a reliable, safe and highly accurate way to scan electronic devices for explosives.

MobiLab® ES features:

  • Compact tabletop scanner
  • Single-touch operation that requires minimal training
  • Self-calibrating
  • Detection of explosives regardless of their configuration
