Future technology

IMS equipment made by Eye on Air has a significantly improved detection performance enabling detection at a distance (or, as we like to say: ‘sniffing, just like a dog’)…

With the adjustments introduced by Eye on Air’s design volume throughput can be increased up to a few cubic meters per minute. The sampling system in our sensor design can be adjusted so that higher volumes of air flow through a sensor module. The high throughput provides very low limit of detection (LOD). A patented method for ion capture increases the capture efficiency, which also lowers the LOD.

Our approach allows skipping the usage of different pre-concentration units typical for current IMS systems in use. The system just ‘sniffs’ at room temperature.

The technology finds a wide use for screening people and goods for illicit substances including explosives, drugs and chemical substances.
