Based on a breakthrough detection technology, the combat proven Fido® XT is currently in use throughout Iraq and Afghanistan. Unlike other systems, the Fido uses a polymer-based technology to achieve better and faster detection results. This innovative material provides an immediate response before rapidly resetting for continued screening operations.
To mitigate the threat of improvised explosive devices, detection solutions must be sensitive, portable and flexible in their application capabilities. The Fido meets and exceeds these requirements through its sensitivity and compact nature - helping users pinpoint people involved in the construction, transportation and deployment of explosive devices.
