LDS introduces SpectroDrone

18th November 2016 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Laser Detect System (LDS) has unveiled a UAS-operated system designed to detect explosives, improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and other chemical compounds from standoff distances, called SpectroDrone.

The system uses a laser-based system to detect explosives and other hazardous materials in gas, liquid, powder or bulk form, at a distance of several metres from the threat. In addition to detecting, SpectroDrone can remotely analyse different materials in real time. It has an operational radius of up to 3km.

The system is currently being displayed at the HLS & Cyber Expo in Tel Aviv integrated on the Airobotics Optimus VTOL UAS.

In this configuration SpectroDrone automatically detects and analyses explosives materials and IEDs, hazardous compounds, and narcotics from a distance, in addition to its surveillance role, in order to enhance situational awareness and real-time response to emergency situations. 

The SpectroDrone payload can also be mounted on UGVs and at fixed sites.
