March 7, 2024

New Delhi: Government of India under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the guidance of Home Minister Amit Shah is fully committed to capacity building and strengthening the Security Forces. In a significant step to further strengthen the Security Forces, the Electronics Corporation of India Limited (ECIL), Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), and Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) have indigenously developed two different categories of explosive detectors for Indian Security Forces.

The explosive detectors were recently handed over to the Director Intelligence Bureau (IB) by the Principal Scientific Adviser (PSA) to the Government of India, Prof. Ajay Kumar Sood for their deployment with the Security Forces. Senior officials from various Security Agencies such as SPG, NSG, CISF, lTBP, SSB, BCAS, SFF, and the Indian Army were also present on the occasion. The detectors will be handed over by the IB to 12 identified Security Agencies for field deployment. PSA to the Government of India termed the successful productization of the detectors as a shining example of Atmanirbhar Bharat.

The detectors, based on Ion Mobility Spectrometry (lMS) technique and the Raman Back Scattering (RBS) principle respectively, have been customized as per specific requirements of the Security Agencies, as part of a development project initiated at the behest of IB in 2017. The user agencies have been asked to provide feedback about the field deployment experience of the two detectors so that further improvements if required, could be effected in future versions of the detectors.
