GDA-X

The standard GDA commonly used to detect and identify hazardous gaseous compounds has been improved to allow the detection of explosives. The hybrid Gas Detector Array (GDA) is a gas detection device with multiple sensors which allows detecting a broad range of hazardous gases with high specificity. All the sensors (IMS, PID, EC, 2xMOS) from the array deliver complementary information about the detected compounds. The sensor signals are evaluated and compared with the library. Upon a library match, compound and concentration is displayed. Extending this technology for the detection of explosives requires evaporation of some explosive materials with very low volatility and some modification on the detector.
