Understanding Explosive Detection Systems

Explosive detection systems can sound particularly confusing, however we’ve all seen them – well if you’ve been to an airport you have. These devices can check each and every bag that’s taken on a plane, and it uses a camera to capture an image of a single bag, determining in seconds whether or not it is potentially dangerous.

If a bag needs looking at closer, the security personnel are likely to inspect it in private, and if it is cleared it can then be taken on the plane. The software inside an explosive device system is extremely clever, and any item could be looked at dangerously.

It almost works like an x-ray system and every item in the bag can be clearly seen through the camera. Nearly 2 million people fly each and every day, and we feel the explosives detection system definitely deserved some recognition.
