Astrophysics Handheld Explosive Trace Detection


The Bruker RoadRunner is a battery-powered, hand-held, trace explosives detector that is both lightweigh
and portable. To maximise user convenience the system operates from rechargeable batteries and to furthe
extend its duration in the field, these batteries are ‘hot-swappable’.

The RoadRunner operates in two modes. A “sniffer” mode draws in vapours from volatile explosives and
taggants and provides results in just a few seconds. To detect the presence of non-volatile explosive compounds
or to check personal property, the product integrates the same industry-standard swab-sampling system tha
is used in the Bruker DE-tector desktop trace explosives detector.

In addition to the dual-role explosives detection capability, RoadRunner also incorporates narcotics detection
as standard. Typical applications of RoadRunner include environments such as airport security, building access
control, customs facilities and prisons/remand centres.
