Portable explosive vapor detector "Pilot-M" has unique specifications and can detect both vapours and trace quantities of explosives indoors and at any means of transport (cars, planes, rail-way, and ships).
Explosives vapour detection is ensured by assay collection from the inspected object surface or its inner space and subsequent analysis of these samples for the presence of typical componentry. Remote trier with grid thickener (part of delivery set) allows taking samples in dusty and smoky areas. Moreover, there is a method of taking samples by special sampling swabs, which are later warmed up in a sample heater, which is also is included in the delivery set.
Pilot-M allows detection of trace quantities of explosives based upon TNT, NG, PENT (PETN), RDX, HMX, Tetryl, cellulose nitrocompound gunpowders, including ones on their base:
SEMTEX (plastic and elastic explosives on RDX & PENT base or their medley), B-type compositions (ТГ-20, ТГ-40, ТГ-60, МС, ТГАФ) * , C-type mix (C1, C2, C3, C4, ПВВ-4, ПВВ-5А, ПВВ-7, ПВВ-12М, ЭВВ-11, ЭВВ-32 etc) * , H-6, HBX, Minol-2, Amatol, Primacord, Primasheet, Tetritol, Tritonal, Cordit N, A-IX-1, A-IX-2, A-IX-20, explosives of Octols & Octols families and some other substances.
* - explosives of Russian origin.
