PORTLAND, Ore., 23 May 2011. FLIR Systems Inc. has introduced the next generation of its handheld explosives detector Fido NXT, redesigned to provide expanded explosives detection capabilities in a more compact, rugged device. The lightweight system is designed to deliver fast, accurate, and consistent explosives detection through a simplified user interface and multimodal design suitable for users of any experience level.
“Explosives and IEDs continue to provide a detection challenge for our forward deployed military as well as law enforcement agencies,” says Bill Sundermeier, president of FLIR Detection & Protection.
All-weather and day/night capabilities enable use of the Fido NXT during covert operations or screening in high-risk, high-threat environments.
More than 3,000 Fido detectors are currently fielded around the world.
