The SABRE 5000 is the smallest, lightest tri-mode handheld system available for detecting trace amounts of explosives; chemical-warfare agents; and toxic industrial chemicals and narcotics. With the ability to detect a wide range of threats, it is a cost-effective instrument for security professionals and military agencies that require portability and flexibility to perform their duties.
The SABRE 5000 is programmed to detect and identify over 40 threat substances in approximately 20 seconds. Threats such as common peroxide-based, volatile and unstable chemicals often used to construct improvised explosive devices (IED) and ammonium nitrate, commonly used in homemade explosives.
Additional features include automatic self-calibration, onboard diagnostics for simple troubleshooting assistance, a truncated alarm feature for faster clear-down, and an onboard library that can be programmed to add new substances as new threats emerge, dependent on needs.
