FLIR Systems Introduces Next Generation Explosives Detection

Category: Defence Industry

PORTLAND -- FLIR Systems, Inc. announced the introduction of the next generation of its industry leading handheld, explosives detector – Fido® NXT. The completely redesigned Fido NXT provides expanded explosives detection capabilities in a smaller, more compact, rugged device.

The Fido NXT was designed and developed based on the lessons learned from more than 3,000 Fido detectors currently fielded around the world. The light weight system delivers fast, accurate and consistent explosives detection through a simplified user interface suitable for users of any experience level. The multi-modal design allows operators to use the device with confidence, even after long periods of inactivity, while also enabling expanded capabilities and additional response data for advanced users and subject matter experts. With all-weather and day/night capabilities, the Fido NXT is ideally suited to covert operations or screening in high risk, high threat environments.

“Explosives and IEDs continue to provide a detection challenge for our forward deployed military as well as law enforcement agencies,” said Bill Sundermeier, president of FLIR Detection & Protection. “With the introduction of the Fido NXT, FLIR continues the tradition of providing cutting edge solutions for the emerging challenges of our time.”

Hands-on demonstrations of the Fido NXT will be provided at the upcoming Force Protection Equipment Demonstration (FPED VIII) in Stafford, VA, May 17-19.
