The Government of India under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and guidance of Home Minister Shri Amit Shah is fully committed for capacity building and strengthening of the Security Forces. In a significant step to further strengthen Security Forces, 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 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 Government of India termed the successful productisation of the detectors as a shining example of Atmanirbhar Bharat.

The detectors, based on Ion Mobility Spectrometry (lMS) technique and Raman Back Scattering (RBS) principle respectively, have been customised 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.
