MS Tech’s Homeland Security and Defense Division Expands the Detection Capabilities of its Sensors
Arlington, Virginia, November 30, MS Tech Ltd. – a global developer, manufacturer, and innovator of nanotechnology, IoT and big-data sensors announces today that its homeland security and defense division, expands its detection capabilities covering chlorates, perchlorates, fentanyl and a range of synthetic opioids, to meet with current growing threats around the world. The latest capabilities enable defense forces, HLS agencies and first responders to detect and identify dangerous chemical threats within seconds.
Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic drug similar, yet much more potent, to morphine and heroin. Law enforcement and first responders have a high risk in being exposed with such drugs, unknowingly, from its many forms and any breathing or direct contact exposure can be deadly and lethal. Chlorates and Perchlorates are very powerful oxidizers and were used in homemade explosives in past terror attacks.
Doron Shalom, CEO of MS Tech says: “The detection of these emerging and global threats is extremely difficult with the traditional analytical methods commonly used today; following an extensive R&D process, enhanced engineering and smart detection algorithms, our innovating HF-QCM nanotechnology sensors, are now able to detect and identify these threats.”
“We expect that these expanded capabilities will be soon adopted by a range of EOD units, police, law enforcement and first responders across the globe; adds Doron Shalom.
MS Tech’s flagship products are the, EXPLOSCAN, DUOSCAN and LIQUISCAN:
The EXPLOSCAN and DUOSCAN are explosive and narcotics trace and vapors detectors and the LIQUISCAN is a liquid explosives detector that use the innovative High-Frequency Quartz Crystal Microbalance “HF-QCM” nanotechnology sensors developed, manufactured and patented by MS Tech Ltd. The products feature an innovative design with self-calibrating and self-cleaning capabilities, with the highest levels of operational availability. The HF-QCM nanotechnology sensors are non-radioactive, providing a complete green and safe working environment.
