Rugged, Lightweight Explosives Trace Detector

The FLIR Fido X3 is the lightest and most sensitive handheld explosives trace detector in its class. It features FLIR TrueTrace™ detection technology to identify military, commercial, homemade, and liquid explosive threats by class collected from surfaces (particulate) and from in bottles (vapor).With a magnesium case and splash-proof seal, its rugged design meets rigorous MIL-STD-810G and IP54 specifications.

It starts from cold in five minutes and has a battery that lasts up to eight hours. With clear-down measured in seconds, operators spend more time sampling and less time waiting. Fido X3 expedites on-site decision making with ten-second threat reporting via intuitive, go/no-go alarms. Training can be completed in 30 minutes, further minimizing the impact on day-to-day operations and costs.

With thousands of units fielded in over 40 countries, the Fido X-series is the most trusted handheld explosives trace detector for critical security applications.
