While we know that QR technology has significant detection capabilities, especially for hard-to-detect sheet explosive compounds, we believe QR detection systems can be further improved.
Quantum's QR technology has a demonstrated ability to identify compounds typically found in sheet explosives, which historically have been the most difficult type of explosive to detect, as well as bulk military and plastic explosives.
The wand will use terahertz light waves to detect and identify metallic and non-metallic weapons, as well as bulk and sheet explosives that are concealed beneath clothing, inside shoes, or in other objects.
A scatter detection enhancement feature enables VIS-M to automatically detect thin sheet explosives by detecting when the x-rays are scattered by the thin materials.
In September of 1997, InVision Technologies purchased Quantum Magnetics, a company which uses quadrupole resonance to detect compounds found in sheet explosives, typically the most difficult type of explosive to detect.
The two companies will co-develop a next-generation hand-held security wand that utilises terahertz light waves to detect and identify metallic and nonmetallic weapons, as well as bulk and sheet explosives that are concealed beneath clothing, inside shoes, or in other objects.
