The Fido X2 from FLIR Systems


The Fido® X2 from FLIR Systems is a handheld explosives trace detector featuring field-proven TrueTrace® technology enabling it to detect a broad range of homemade, commercial, and military explosives with best-in-class sensitivity.

Weighing less than 700 grams the Fido X2 is a truly portable device designed for use at security checkpoints during long periods of high alert. The Fido X2 provides the perfect tool for screening vehicles and personal belongings for explosives residue that might indicate contact with explosives. With full analysis provided in ten seconds or less, security personnel can quickly and accurately screen for threats to mass transit, sporting arenas, and critical infrastructure with confidence.

Using the Fido X2 is highly intuitive. On-screen prompts and simple go/no-go alarms guide users through operation and aid in sampling and decision-making. The Fido X2 features on-device video training that provides real-time help and reduces the cost and logistical burden of recurrent training. Operating without the need for hazardous chemicals or a radioactive ionization source the Fido X2 is truly operator friendly. Reusable sampling swabs ensure cost-effective operation.

Founded in 1978 and headquartered in Wilsonville, Oregon, FLIR Systems is a world-leading maker of sensor systems that enhance perception and heighten awareness, helping to save lives, improve productivity, and protect the environment. Through its nearly 3,500 employees, FLIR’s vision is to be “The World’s Sixth Sense” by leveraging thermal imaging and adjacent technologies to provide innovative, intelligent solutions for security and surveillance, environmental and condition monitoring, outdoor recreation, machine vision, navigation, and advanced threat detection.
