  1. Operator Course

  2. Course Overview • Trace • Sampling • Equipment overview • Analysis

  3. Trace The I3 can detect a small amount of explosive particles, down to one billionth of a gram (the size of a grain of salt cut into a thousand pieces). Pan Am 103, Lockerbie, Scotland

  4. Trace The I3 is just one more tool to help you improve your ability to detect Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). Use it along with your X-ray, metal detectors, canine units, physical inspections, and current security measures.

  5. Trace Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Common Components: • Explosive material • Initiator/detonator • Power source/battery • Timer • Wires/IR

  6. Trace Substances Detected Plastic Explosives: • RDX (C-4) • PETN • SEMTEX (PETN/RDX)

  7. Trace Substances Detected Other Explosives: • TNT Trinitrotoluene • DNT Dinitrotoluene • NG Nitroglycerine • HMX Cyclotetramethylene tetranitramine • AMNO3Ammonium nitrate • TETRYL

  8. Trace How Do Explosive Traces Get Transferred? • Explosive traces cling to anything they touch. • Explosive traces transfer from person to person, person to object, object to object and airborne.

  9. Trace Where is Trace Detection Applied? • Cargo, mail, and packages • Conveyance access - Security access points, border crossings, checkpoints • Baggage • Facilities protection - government buildings, correctional institutions

  10. Trace Which of the following can be detected with the VT2? • Gun • Radio lined with plastic explosive • Heart medication • Pepper spray • Laptop with concealed explosives • Stun gun • Explosive traces on a car door handle

  11. Trace • What is an IED? • What are some of the explosives the I3 can detect? • What are some things the I3 cannot detect? • Are explosive traces illegal? • How are traces transferred?

  12. Remember, traces cling to surfaces Determine areas for sampling Load a sample trap onto the wand or wipe by hand, and sample targeted areas Sampling

  13. Sampling Materials and Equipment for Sampling • Sampling Traps • Sampling Wand • Gloves • Sampling Table or Area • Alcohol (isopropyl 70% or greater)

  14. Insert the sample trap into the desorber. Wait for message: Sampling Please Remove Sample

  15. Sampling Sampling Fundamentals Vehicles: • Door handle • Gas cap • Steering wheel • Knobs • Seat Belt • Luggage • Wherever there may be a fingerprint. • Avoid sampling engine parts.

  16. Sampling Sampling Fundamentals Luggage/Bags/Briefcases: • Handles • Straps • Zipper tabs • Latches • Interior seams and linings • Commonly touched areas

  17. Sampling Sampling Fundamentals Electronic Devices: • Vents • Seams • Battery compartments • Disk drives • Edges • Latches AVOID SAMPLING: • Monitors • Keyboards • Camera lenses

  18. Sampling • What are some sampling fundamentals? • What areas could we sample on a vehicle? • What areas could we sample on a vehicle? Electronic item? Luggage? • What areas do we avoid sampling? Why? • When do we discard a sample trap?

  19. Equipment Overview Touchscreen Desorber Printer

  20. Select Scan Display Equipment Overview

  21. Equipment Overview Rear View

  22. Equipment Overview • Where is the sampling trap placed? • Describe the Select Scan screen. • How long is a cold-start warm-up? • When do you shut the unit down?

  23. Analysis • Place the sample trap into the desorber. • Analysis begins automatically. • Maintain control of the item you are sampling. • Observe No Alarm - Ready or Explosives Detected on the display. • Remove the sampling trap. • If No Alarm - Ready, reuse the trap. If Explosives Detected, discard trap and gloves.

  24. Analysis • Resolve the alarm in accordance with current SOP. • Examples: • Contact your supervisor. • Maintain control of item. • Let the owner know that further samples may be necessary. • Decontaminate the work area.

  25. Analysis Clearing the Unit After an Alarm • Press the CLEAR button. • In most cases the unit will clear after an alarm. Otherwise, maintenance may be necessary.

  26. Analysis • What is the indication of an alarm? No alarm? • What button do you press to clear the unit? • What do you do with the trap after an alarm?

  27. Course Review • Trace • Sampling • Equipment overview • Analysis
