DetectaChem has received a $10 million IDIQ contract from the US Navy to provide its SEEKERe explosive detection kit (EDK), the company announced on 27 June.

The SEEKERe EDK was selected as the navy's next-generation hand held explosive detector following rigorous and extensive validation testing. The company will supply and maintain an estimated 498 SEEKERe EDK units.

The SEEKERe EDK is a portable and ruggedised detection device with simple, video-guided operation, MIL-STD-810G certification and an IP66 rating. Its automated colourimetrics provide accurate trace detection for nitroaromatics, nitramines, nitrate esters, heat and moisture exchanging, inorganic nitrates, peroxides, chlorates and derivatives in a single test.
