Although Block offers its own LaserWarn chemical detection system, we also supply lasers to other manufacturers of safety and security systems.
Chemical agents, biological threats, explosive materials, and toxic substances all contain "fingerprints" in the mid-infrared region. Block's mid-IR lasers enable rapid CBRNE threat detection in this wavelength range.
Because of their sensitivity, speed, and safety over long distances, quantum cascade lasers allow for almost instantaneous standoff identification of hazardous and toxic materials over hundreds of meters. Due to their small size and rugged construction, our lasers can be used in handheld, field-portable, and fixed-installation systems.
Below are some examples of applications in which our lasers can assist with personnel safety and threat detection.
Detection and identification of dangerous aerosols and gases
Detection and identification of dangerous solids and liquids
Infrared illuminators and beacons
