Smart Defense company showcased explosives trace detector at military exhibition in Ukraine

The Smart Defense company took part in the XIV International Specialized Exhibition “Arms and Security 2017” in Kyiv, Ukraine. During the exhibition was released the Fido X3 lightweight explosives trace detector developed by FLIR Systems, Inc.

The FLIR Fido X3 is the lightest and most sensitive handheld explosives trace detector in its class. It features FLIR TrueTrace® detection technology to identify military, commercial, homemade, and liquid explosive threats by class collected from surfaces (particulate) and from in bottles (vapor).

With a magnesium case and splash-proof seal, its rugged design meets rigorous MIL-STD-810G and IP54 specifications. It starts from cold in five minutes and has a battery that lasts up to eight hours. With clear-down measured in seconds, operators spend more time sampling and less time waiting.


Fido X3 expedites on-site decision making with ten-second threat reporting via intuitive, go/no-go alarms. Training can be completed in 30 minutes, further minimizing the impact on day-to-day operations and costs.

With thousands of units fielded in over 40 countries, the Fido X-series is the most trusted handheld explosives trace detector for critical security applications.
