Explosives Detection – When Every Second CountsExplosives detection equipment is a necessity in today’s world. It is used to locate explosives so they can be safely disarmed and properly disposed. This will prevent damage to surrounding areas, and prevent death to people who would otherwise have been affected by the explosion.

The Buster K910B Density Meter is the answer to this need. It is the “gold standard” in the world of contraband detectors. Time-tested, the Buster K910B has been proven the safest product for this sort of detection for over thirty years. It is dependable, and has been shown to be effective to protect citizens and their food and property.

The Buster K910B was created by Patrick J. Campbell, the founder of CSECO. He used his own ideas to begin, and then asked end users what would be helpful to them. It was made to easily find all kinds of contraband, including drugs, radioactive material (which could indicate explosives), cash, and other illegal substances. It is able to see through wood, reinforced plastic, and even metal, which allows the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol to search without opening or damaging items.

Since it can see through substances, it can scan through walls, and from the outside of vehicles. It scans very quickly, allowing an agent to scan an average size room in only ten minutes, and most vehicles in five minutes.

If the scanner finds explosives, the proper emergency personnel can then be contacted, allowing the bomb to be disarmed, and making proper disposal possible.

The Buster K910B Density Meter includes Rad-Aware® radiation detection. This allows detection of radioactive materials, such as is often used in bombs, but also allows the machine to be used to help set up a safe perimeter outside the radioactive area, in the event of a bomb’s detonation.

When we watch action movies, or many television shows, we see a hero find a bomb and miraculously disarm it as the clock hits mere seconds remaining. Since real life does not always work the same way, explosives detection equipment is needed to help our heroes with this task, and the best one available is the Buster K910B Density Meter.

Why is Fiberscope Security Equipment Used for Drug Interdiction?

Fiberscope security equipment refers to a fiber optic tool that is flexible and has a fiber optic light included to allow things to be seen in small areas or areas that are difficult to get to. The CSECO FV Series Fiberscope is one of these, and is included in the CT-30 Contraband Team Detection Kit. The flexible fiberscope is made up of a bunch of fiber optic fibers, which allow light and visibility. It can be equipped with a digital camera or camcorder, which allows recording of items at the hidden end of the tool. Some areas where this is used include car doors, fuel tanks, behind dashboards, under seats, between walls, and other potentially hidden areas.

The FV Series Fiberscope is all one piece, so there are no parts to lose. The battery is built in and rechargeable, and the LED light is also built in. It features two-way articulation, allowing all directions to be viewed, and can be operated with one hand. Still pictures and video capture are a part of the camera’s functionality and the digital camera that is recommended allows images to be reviewed instantly.

Drug interdiction refers to the process of curtailing the smuggling of controlled substances, and includes detection of contraband, monitoring transports, intercepting deliveries, disrupting transactions, and apprehending the people involved in the illegal activity. One of the primary players in the war on drugs is the U.S. Coast Guard, since they patrol a large proportion of the country’s borders. The U.S. Customs and Border Patrol also play a large part, since they handle anything that comes in by air. Federal organizations and regional law enforcement agencies work together with these two to keep as many illegal drugs as possible from entering the United States. In local areas, drug interdiction includes drug busts on street corners to raiding meth labs, to catching contraband at the borders of the city or state. Even private citizens can be helpful in drug interdiction by keeping an eye out and being willing to identify those who are dealing or using illegal narcotics.

Fiberscopes – also known as borescopes or endoscopes – are an important tool when agents are working to find and stop the trafficking of drugs. It allows agents to see into places that would otherwise be impossible. CSECO’s FV Series Fiberscope and CT-30 Contraband Team Detection Kits are frontrunners of fiberscope security equipment being used in the war on drugs in the United States.
