The ProtectIR can identify more than 22,000 solid and liquid compounds. Emergency response and personal need to chemically identify hazardous materials to understand the threat and mitigate the impact when released intentionally or accidentally. The ProtectIR identifies the most harmful toxic industrial compounds (TICs), chemical warfare agents (CWAs), explosives, narcotics, petroleum products, caustics and even consumer products.

“Our emergency response customers never know what threats they will encounter in their communities,” he said Jon Frattaroli, CEO of RedWave Technology. “That’s why we put so much effort into research and development – to provide our customers with the most advanced technology capable of detecting the widest range of threats.”

The core technology behind ProtectIR is Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, which has been used in homeland security applications for more than 20 years. The size of the built-in threat library, coupled with the latest, most advanced data analytics and groundbreaking algorithms, allow ProtectIR to identify even complex mixes with a high level of confidence.

RedWave Director of Product Development, Johannes Seelenbinderstated, “ProtectIR can identify almost twice as many chemical threats as comparable FTIR-based products. Results are instantly available on device and connected mobile devices with Redwave’s cloud-based TeamLeader app. This advanced technology enables near real-time remote viewing and advanced analysis of high-level team members outside of the hot zone.”

ProtectIR is the latest in RedWave Technology’s suite of chemical identification tools, including ThreatID, which can identify thousands of gas, powder, and liquid threats in a single device, and XplorIR, a robust, handheld identifier that can identify over 5,500 gases and vapors.
