New patent to save lives, improve mass transit security, public events

TAMPA Fla. – Trace Eye-D, a technology research and development startup in Florida, filed a patent application revealing a new technology late last year, which is designed to detect and identify explosive compounds quickly and easily.

The new technology was developed over the course of two years at the company’s Sarasota, Florida patentfacility and is capable of chemically detecting the presence or absence of an explosive substance on a surface within seconds.

Leaders from Trace Eye-D believe the technology is a significant breakthrough in the fight against domestic terrorism because it gives law enforcement and security personnel the ability to rapidly screen areas or individuals for explosive materials, without the need for additional equipment.

“There is a major need for convenient and accurate on-site detection systems that are able to rapidly detect explosive compounds and their precursors,” said Chris Baden, CEO of Trace Eye-D. “The technology we have created is a critical step forward and when adopted can create an extra layer of security for systems already in place.”

Researchers from Trace Eye-D believe the new detection technology is ideal for use by security screeners at airports, public transit hubs, entertainment and sports venues, and any public or private venue where there may be a threat.
