Ion mobility spectrometers (IMS) can detect a multitude of compounds including explosives, illicit drugs, and chemical warfare agents. Responders use IMS to detect chemicals, explosives, and narcotic compounds in a variety of operating environments.
The Focus Group Report, Market Survey Report, and Assessment Report on IMS Chemical Detectors are limited distribution documents, and area available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
