FLIR Systems

FLIR System recently announced the release of the FLIR Griffin 844, the latest addition to its leading-edge Griffin 800-series desktop chemical trace detector product line used by security officials to screen personal belongings, parcels, cargo, skin, vehicles, and other surfaces for explosives and narcotics threats. The Griffin 844 delivers a significantly lower false alarm rate than other offerings, offers expandability to address future threats without impacting sensitivity, and ensures fast and reliable clear-down to maximise availability.

Significantly lower false alarm rate

Built around FLIR’s exclusive mass spectrometry (MS) technology, the Griffin 844 provides much higher resolution compared to existing ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) technology, resulting in improved chemical selectivity. As a result, the Griffin 844 yields significantly lower false alarm rates, providing confidence to security officers that only true threats are detected.

Expandable threat library

The Griffin 844 performs dual-mode detection for a range of current threats, including military, commercial, and home-made explosives, as well as commonly abused narcotics and synthetic drugs. FLIR’s expandable library allows new threats to be added to the library without impacting sensitivity or false alarm rates. FLIR offers free updates to its Griffin library as they become available, providing customers with a future-proof solution that addresses emerging threats.

Maximum operational availability

FLIR’s menu-based GSS Touch™ application eliminates data interpretation and streamlines checkpoint operations. The Griffin 844’s innovative system design ensures fast and reliable clear-down that prevents lengthy bake-outs and minimises maintenance to maximise operational availability. It uses a non-radioactive ionisation source to eliminate associated costs and logistics.

“We are proud to offer the Griffin 844, the only desktop trace detector that uses gold-standard, mass spectrometry detection technology in checkpoint screening applications to drive higher accuracy,” said Dennis Barket, Jr., Vice President and General Manager of FLIR Detection. “FLIR is leading the field with lower false alarms and quick clear-down to ensure public safety and operational efficiency.”

The FLIR Griffin 844 will be showcased at the AUSA Exposition on October 12-14 in Washington, DC and is now available for purchase through FLIR or established distribution networks.
