  2. Course Overview • Trace Detection • Equipment Overview • Calibration • Sampling • Itemiser3 Analysis • Shift Maintenance PN: TM001016 rev:2

  3. Trace Detection PN: TM001016 rev:2

  4. Trace Detection Purpose of Trace Detection • Traces are microscopic amounts of particles and vapors. • Explosive and narcotic substances are organic substances and constantly give off traces. • Trace detection involves identifying amounts that cannot be seen by the human eye. PN: TM001016 rev:2

  5. Trace Detection Purpose of Trace Detection An IED(Improvised Explosive Device)can look like anything limited onlyby the imagination and resourcesof the bomb-maker PN: TM001016 rev:2

  6. Trace Detection Substances Detected Plastic Explosives: • PETN • RDX (C-4) • SEMTEX (PETN & RDX) • HMX Cyclotetramethylene tetranitramine. Other Explosives: • TNT - Trinitrotoluene • Nitro - Nitroglycerine • AM NO3 - Ammonium nitrate (NH4NO3) • TATP • Smokeless Powder PN: TM001016 rev:2

  7. Trace Detection Substances Detected Drugs Detected: • Cocaine • Heroin • THC • Methamphetamine • Amphetamine • PCP PN: TM001016 rev:2

  8. Trace Detection How Traces Are Transferred • Contraband substances cling to hands. • Substances transfer to anything touched. PN: TM001016 rev:2

  9. Trace Detection How Traces Are Transferred Legitimate Reasons for Explosive Traces: Medication: • Nitroglycerin • RDX Occupations: • Military • Construction/Demolition • Agriculture • Landscaping • Lab Workers PN: TM001016 rev:2

  10. Trace Detection Applications • Cargo, mail, and packages • Conveyance access - Security access points, border crossings, checkpoints • Baggage • Vehicles • Facilities protection - government buildings, correctional institutions PN: TM001016 rev:2

  11. Trace Detection Review Questions • What is the purpose of Trace Detection? • Name some of the substances that can or cannot be identified. • How are traces transferred? • Where can trace detection be used? • Discuss how the following might or might not be detected with the Itemiser3? • Firearm • Laptop or radio lined with plastic explosive • Heart medication • Pepper spray • Stun gun • Explosive traces on package or suitcase • Cocaine PN: TM001016 rev:2

  12. Equipment Overview PN: TM001016 rev:2

  13. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Equipment Overview Consumables & Accessories • AC & DC Power Cords • Hand Wand Sampler • Calibration and Multipurpose Sample Traps • Soft Shipping Case with User’s Manual & Maintenance Log Book • Gloves • Printer Paper • Canned Air • Wipes 8. 7. PN: TM001016 rev:2

  14. Touchscreen Desorber Printer Equipment Overview Major Components PN: TM001016 rev:2

  15. Equipment Overview Major Components: Rear Panel 4VDC OUT SERIAL MONITOR DC INPUT AC Fuses KEYBOARD DC FUSE NETWORK FLOPPY On/Off PN: TM001016 rev:2

  16. Equipment Overview Power Up • Power-up the system. • Wait approximately 30 minutes for warm up and stabilization. PN: TM001016 rev:2

  17. Equipment Overview Log On Log on: • Operator defaultPIN is:1 2 3 4. PN: TM001016 rev:2

  18. Equipment Overview Log On PN: TM001016 rev:2

  19. Equipment Overview Questions • What are the Major components of an Itemiser3? • What is your log in PIN? • Where is the power switch located? • What actions must be done after initial power up before operation of the system? • Should the system be powered off between shifts? PN: TM001016 rev:2

  20. Calibration PN: TM001016 rev:2

  21. Calibration Reasons for Calibration Why Calibrate and what does calibration do? PN: TM001016 rev:2

  22. Calibration Auto Calibration Procedure • Press <Menu>and then press<Auto Calibrate> • When the Status bar asks for theCalibration trap, insert a Calibrationtrap into the Desorber. • The Itemiser3 will sample. The Status bar will prompt for the removal of the Calibration Trap. • Discard the Trap after removal. • The unit will go through an analysis then display calibration results in a pop-up window:Press OK to accept the calibration values shown on the screen. • Press <Clear> and let the Itemiser3 clear. PN: TM001016 rev:2

  23. Calibration Summary • Why is calibration necessary? • How often do you calibrate? PN: TM001016 rev:2

  24. Sampling PN: TM001016 rev:2

  25. Sampling Equipment & Materials Calibration and Sample Traps Handle by the area outlined in red Sample area outlined in blue Gold Sample TrapUsed with the Hand Vacuum Option. Calibration Trap(Marked with a “C”)Do not use as a sample trap! Sample Trap(Marked with a “hole”) PN: TM001016 rev:2

  26. Sampling Sampling Techniques: Hand • Use firm contact. • Sample in one direction, one time. • Take smart samples. • Sample most-touched last. PN: TM001016 rev:2

  27. Sampling Sampling Techniques: Wand To take a particle sample with the hand wand: 1. Press button on backside of Wand and insert tip of trap into Wand. 2. Let go of button and push wide area of trap down until pin goes through provided hole in trap. 3. Handle by wide end of trap only. 4. Perform sampling procedures. 5. Remove trap from the wand. 6. Insert trap into the Desorber. 7. The instrument automatically samples. 8. When prompted, remove sample trap. 9. Note Results. PN: TM001016 rev:2

  28. Sampling Sampling Techniques: Vacuum Wand • The gold colored sample trap must be used with the vacuum wand. • Use the same methods when sampling with the vacuum wand as when sampling by hand or hand wand. PN: TM001016 rev:2

  29. Sampling Sampling Techniques: Vehicles Vehicles: • Door handle • Gas cap • Steering wheel • Knobs • Seat Belt • Luggage • Wherever there may be a fingerprint. PN: TM001016 rev:2

  30. Sampling Sampling Techniques: Baggage Outside of Item: • Zipper tabs • Closure flaps • Latches • Handles and Straps Inside of Item: • Seams and seam closure points Commonly Touched Areas PN: TM001016 rev:2

  31. Sampling Sampling Techniques: Electronic Devices Electronic Devices: • Vents • Seams • Battery compartments • Disk drives • Edges • Latches Avoid Sampling: • Computer Screens • Camera lenses PN: TM001016 rev:2

  32. Sampling Review Questions • What are some sampling fundamentals? • What areas do we sample on bags? • What areas do we sample on electronic items? • What areas do we avoid sampling? PN: TM001016 rev:2

  33. Analysis PN: TM001016 rev:2

  34. Analysis Analysis Procedure • Place the sample trap into the Desorber. • Remove the sample trap when prompted. • EitherNo Alarm-Ready orExplosives orDrugs orContraband Detectedin the Status Bar. PN: TM001016 rev:2

  35. Analysis Alarm Resolution & Recovery Any alarm should be resolvedin accordance with your organization’s current operating procedures. Such procedures should include: • Clearing the Itemiser3. • Discarding the sample trap and gloves. • Decontamination requirements. • Obtaining a new sample trap and gloves. PN: TM001016 rev:2

  36. Review Questions: Analysis 1. Where is the sample trap placed in the Itemiser3? 2. When is the trap removed? 3. What is the indication of an alarm? No alarm? 4. How do you clear the Itemiser3? 5. What happens when the Itemiser3 is contaminated? 6. When are the sample traps disposed of? PN: TM001016 rev:2

  37. Calibrate the system Check the printer paper Clean touchscreen and outside of unit with GE IonTrack provided alcohol wipes Clean and sample the work area to make sure it is free of contamination Shift Maintenance PN: TM001016 rev:2

  38. Changing Printer Paper Shift Maintenance 1. 2. 4. 3. • Insert roll with paper rolling off the top. Pull out enough paper to feed through the print mechanism and through the slot in the door. • Open the green lever and feed the paper through the print mechanism. • Make sure there is enough paper to feed through the slot in the door. • Close lever and then close the printer door. 5.
