Chemical Detection

- Smiths Detection of Watford, UK, has introduced a multisensor hand-held device that can quickly identify toxic industrial chemicals, chemical warfare agents, and gamma radiation. The Hazardous Gas and Vapor Identifier (HGVI) uses ion mobility spectrometry, photoionization detection, and Taguchi gas sensors to look at unknown substances from various angles.

Explosives detection

- CompactSafeis a new system that is designed to detect solid and liquid explosive residues on the surface of and inside small electronic devices, such as laptops, MP3 players, cameras, and cellular phones.

Wearable chemical detector

- Smiths Detection of Pine Brook, New Jersey, has introduced the wearable Lightweight Chemical Detector for first responders. Already in use by the armed forces, the device offers three modes of detection.

Pandemic monitoring

- A new service from iJET Intelligent Risk Systems of Annapolis, Maryland, provides intelligence on global health concerns. Health and corporate preparedness experts sift information from around the world and distill it to produce the Weekly Pandemic Monitor service.

Trace detection

- Smiths Detection of Pine Brook, New Jersey, has introduced the SABRE 4000, a hand-held trace detector that can detect threats from explosives, chemical warfare agents, toxic industrial chemicals, and narcotics. The unit can detect and identify more than 40 threat substances in approximately 15 seconds.
