Laser Optical Engineering wins CTSS award
Laser Optical Engineering has won the Electro Optic, Thermal Imaging and Night Vision category award for its Explosive Residue Detection technology 'ExDtect' at the Counter Terrorism and Specialist Security (CTSS) Awards, held last week at the Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington.

The primary function of the ExDtect scanner is to produce real-time images highlighting the location of any explosive residue within a target region. It was designed with the aim of allowing the user to operate the system using minimal manpower to achieve maximum security through complete scanning.
The primary user group for the scanner is at package handling facilities where the real-time scan capability allows the user to check all items with no delay. The ExDtect checks each item for traces of explosive residue and automatically signals an alarm if traces are detected. A threat can be identified and tagged for further checking, which can take place in a secure area to minimise threats and delays to the main through-flow at the facility.
