GreyScan Detection announced that the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Innovation Task Force (ITF) has chosen its ETD-100 Inorganic Explosives Trace Detector (ETD) solution for demonstration planning.

This selection comes after GreyScan submitted its proposal to the TSA’s Innovative Demonstrations for Enterprise Advancement (IDEA) Broad Agency Announcement (BAA), the company said in a media release.

The ETD-100, renowned for its speed, precision, portability, and user-friendly operation, has been designed to bolster security measures across a range of checkpoint environments.

Specifically crafted to detect explosive compositions containing inorganic materials, the ETD-100 complements conventional explosive trace detectors by enhancing detection capabilities against homemade explosives and improvised explosive devices (IEDs), which remain primary threats in global terrorism.

Expert panels comprising members from various TSA offices evaluated all submissions, assessing each solution’s alignment with the TSA’s mission, its potential impact, and the vendor’s ability to demonstrate the proposed solution.

“It is with great pride and enthusiasm to announce GreyScan’s engagement with the TSA Innovation Task Force,” said Mo McGowan, chief executive officer at GreyScan Detection.

“We are honoured by this opportunity and look forward to showcasing our products globally. Our team is fully committed to delivering innovative solutions and deeply appreciates this opportunity,” he added.

Established in 2015, GreyScan Detection stands as a pioneer in trace detection technology, specialising in the identification of inorganic explosives.
