  • ECAC Type B Liquid Explosive Detection System (LEDS)
  • ECAC Standard 3 approved
  • For Airport security checkpoint applications
  • Exceptionally fast
  • Simple operation and easy to use
  • Minimal training and installation
  • Economic/Competitive cost
  • Low running and maintenance costs
  • Ideally suited for high throughput of items due to fast scan time
  • Used as a frontline device for smaller airports


Due to the class-leading detection speed and ease of use of the EMILI 3 system, it is ideally suited for high-throughput lanes at airport security checkpoints. EMILI 3 can be used as a stand-alone scanner or in conjunction with other equipment for false alarm resolution. For smaller airports it can be used as the frontline device to minimize delays. It provides a most economical solution with minimal maintenance required and low ongoing operational costs. The unit is portable to allow flexibility in the work space; it can be moved or relocated as required. The EMILI 3 system can also be used for other security checkpoint applications such as for public events, at government establishments and hotels.


EMILI 3 uses a patented dual mode RF/microwave and IR sensor technology for detection. The properties of the substances are measured non-invasively through the container wall, ensuring that the container can remain sealed.

Distinguishing Capability

Consumer liquids and gels in glass, plastic or ceramic bottles (either opaque or clear) and metal / metallised containers such as soft drinks, alcoholic drinks including spirits, perfumes, shower gels and medicines can be safely distinguished from potentially hazardous items such as liquid explosives and their precursors. Large and irregular shaped containers can be scanned, with volumes of around 50 ml to 5 litre.
