Laser Spectroscopy Detection Technology

The LDS system utilizes unique, patented laser spectroscopy processing of illumination reflected from the tested material. This method enables stand-off detection as well as detection of trace materials and substances in-situ – without the need for sampling. Implementation of this technology enables the detection of explosives by a laser beam in real-time, from a distance, without direct contact and identification of such materials, utilizing a data bank of known substances.

These systems can be integrated in static, mobile and hand-held detectors and analysis tools. This unique technology is effective in detecting explosives, narcotics, chemicals, biological substances, and minerals having a distinct spectral signature.

The technology employs multiple spectral analysis and data fusion tools to automate the processing and detection, meeting high throughput identification and inspection requirements, e.g., for passenger and handbag screening at airports. LDS systems can be used as stand-alone core elements or as integrated sensors in existing scanning devices.

Laser Detect Systems has reached a technological breakthrough that enables the stand-off, automatic, real-time detection and identification of a wide variety of materials, from minerals, explosives and narcotics, to chemicals and biological substances. This advancement in spectroscopy has allowed the Company to envision far-reaching applications that will serve multiple markets.

We expanded upon the traditional applications of spectroscopy, applying laboratory techniques into the fields of industry and security applications. This has been achieved by combining several scientific and technological disciplines solving imminent problems.

Advantages of Laser Spectroscopy

  • Stand off, automatic, real-time detection and identification
  • Detection of minute quantities of substances, including substances with low vapor pressures
  • Integration and upgrade of existing detection systems and processes
  • Forensic idintification and characterization of individually-manufactured materials, possibly leading to their source of production
  • Signal enhancement, elimination of “background noise” (i.e., black pepper saturation)
  • Field detection accuracy comparable to laboratory testing
  • Reduced false-negative and false-positive detection indications
