TacticID Series

The TacticID is a field ready handheld spectral analysis instrument designed for non-contact forensic analysis of hazardous and common chemicals, explosives, narcotics, precursors, cutting agents, and much more. Designed from the ground up for a variety of first responders including hazardous material technicians, EOD/bomb squad, customs and border patrol, law enforcement agents, military and more, TacticID utilizes lab-proven Raman spectroscopy, allowing users to get real time actionable identification of unknown samples directly through transparent packing materials in the field or in the lab. The N model detects narcotics and the 1064 model has the option for 1064 nm wavelength.
