Saratov scientists have created an "electronic nose", smacking explosives better than dogs

24
At the exhibition “Days of Innovation of the Central Military District” in Yekaterinburg, a sensory gas-analytical system “Electronic Nose” is presented, capable of recognizing explosives at a distance, conveys TASS.




“The sensitivity of the device is one atom of explosives per million air molecules. "Electronic nose" in 10 is better than the smell of dogs, "said Andrei Lashkov, a researcher at Saratov Technical University.

"The gas analyzer can be programmed to recognize a wide range of explosives and toxic gases, - explained the scientist. - On the crystal substrate inside the device are 38 sensors. The principle of operation is simple - when a gas mixture enters the medium, its atoms react with the sensors. A picture immediately appears on the screen - what kind of gas and its concentration. ”

Developers from Saratov are hoping that their invention will interest the military.

“Everything that is presented at the exhibition is quite interesting and, for the most part, it will be taken into service. Everywhere there is a zest, all this must be studied, put in our military way and see to what extent it will be useful for us, ”said the commander of the Central Military District, Vladimir Zarudnitsky.

According to him, in the pavilion there are about 400 samples of 25-thematic sections, "including in the field of robotics, energy, automotive and armored and engineering equipment, communications, intelligence and electronic warfare."

          These things have a great future. For example, they are very useful at the airport, to place such on luggage conveyor belts and within. Also in seaports. That is, where you need to monitor security 24 hours 365 days a year.

      Excellent. Airports, sea and railway stations have been waiting for such a device for a long time. After all, this is still an obstacle for "black widows".

      Not only traffic cops but also the Ministry of Emergencies and the Armed Forces and many other things are very useful.

      Any gas analyzer rescues a nut in front of the nose.

      This thing was invented in the USSR, used to protect strategic facilities such as nuclear power plants.
      True, the device was then non-transportable.

      Its dofiga where you can apply:

      Detection of explosive, narcotic, toxic substances;
      Environmental monitoring;
      Real-time control of technological processes;
      Control of gas leaks in pipelines;
      Monitoring the concentration of explosive gases in mines;
      Emission control of industrial enterprises;
      Air purity control of residential areas, industrial and office premises;
      Quality control of petroleum products;
      Environmental safety monitoring of construction and finishing, packaging and other materials and consumer goods;
      Food quality control.

    Start testing from the "outhouse" type toilet. Funny: our "brains" made a device for determining traces of life on Mars. The general says to them: over there, test it on the lawn. After the analysis, the device issued a conclusion: there is no life on this object. General eggheads "on the carpet": wanted to substitute stsu.i!

    Developers from Saratov are hoping that their invention will interest the military.

    Most likely not military, but the Ministry of Emergencies, FSB, FSO, specialized units of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, etc.
    The military, as usual, has sappers.
    And to say that in the near future this device will go into service en masse somewhat prematurely. Piece, for specialists - yes, of course. And for the most part - as our lop-eared friends were the main tool for finding explosives and drugs, they will remain so.

    A dog is cheaper, it senses not only explosives, but much more, it does not require electric power, it does not break, it itself moves and generally a friend of a person.

    The source said the "electronic nose" would be combined with a male rabbit emulator, codenamed "Concerned Hare". You will not envy whoever finds explosives in a car ...

    “The sensitivity of the device is one atom of explosive per million air molecules. "Electronic nose" is 10 times better than dogs' sense of smell "

    I think the dogs have enough work. She is a rational being.

    I wonder how many dog ​​handlers took part in the discussion? And those who do not recognize anything but the dog, even if he was present during the dog’s combat work? Vague doubts torment me .....

    Continue, continue. True, for the first time about such our apparatus, an analogue of the Western one, I heard that way in 1982-1985. And to this day, "They create", it is no longer known in what circle. Now it is again presented as a kind of know-how ...
