Israel innovators discover how to use laser technology to find explosives before it’s too late.

An Israeli-designed, drone-based sensor capable of remotely detecting explosives, hazardous material and drugs was unveiled at a trade show in Tel Aviv this week at the Homeland Security Expo.

Laser Detect System (LDS) Ltd., the company behind the SpectroDrone system which specialized in laser detection technology, claims that the device can identify “explosives and other hazardous materials, in gas, liquid, powder or bulk form, at a distance of several meters from the threat.”

The sensor is mounted on an Airbotics Optimus drone capable of flying a distance of up to three kilometers, allowing for safe detection without endangering lives, according to the developer. The system can also be mounted on robots or vehicles.
