Beirut’s Recovery Using ADE651

Posted on 19 August, 2016  in Uncategorized

In the history of every nation, there are many scars left by bloody wars. The destruction caused by those wars, the human tragedies and the large amount of deaths are some of the things that influence not only the fate of an entire nation, but the very lives of those who managed to survive a war. Still, life’s not always about death and destruction. Things move on. People move on.

Humans are in such way constructed that they always move on. We have a special power to get over things, some belief in a better future. Combined with advanced technology, those are the ingredients for curing the scars left by the war.

Beirut’s recovery is a similar situation, after a massive Israeli air force bombing, an event that left a profound mark in Lebanon’s history. Although it was a terrible tragedy, people prevailed and, along with local authorities, equipped with cutting edge technology, succeeded in laying a foundation for a new beginning.

After the Israeli air force bombing of Beirut – Lebanon’s capital with over one million inhabitants today -, besides numerous damage on population, economy and architecture of the entire city, there were many bombs left unexploded, at different depths beneath the surface.

Things have not remained so since, over time, Lebanese authorities have requested a thorough inspection in Beirut, specifically in one of the areas most affected by the bombing in question (in 2006). In order to find unexploded bombs buried deep underground, and to avoid devastating events caused by a possible explosion, Lebanese authorities have used special equipment to detect them – the ADE 651 explosives detector. One of the most important checks carried out by ADE 651, took place in one of several bridges destroyed in Israeli air force bombing.

After using the ADE 651, there was a small area that indicated the presence of explosive devices. The area was excavated thoroughly to the depths of over 10 meters, and there was found an unexploded bomb – one that can see in the image. Thus, the technology and professionalism of Lebanese authorities were able to solve one of the most dangerous signs of war. A possible explosion of such a bomb buried underground would have made numerous claims, risking the loss of a large number of lives.

Advanced Detection Equipment 651

ADE651 - Advanced Detection Equipment

What is the ADE?
The ADE (Advanced Detection Equipment), is a revolutionary tool in the effective detection and location of Narcotics (drugs), Explosives, and specific substances at long-range distances. The first tests we conducted showed an �indicative� detection range of approximately 650 metres and hence, the first version was called; ADE650. However, over the years, the ADE developed and its current model, (ADE 651, 680) has more enhanced features making it a more useable and more effective device.

How does the ADE work?
The ADE works on a principal we have termed as Electro-Magnetic Attraction. The principle for long range detection is based on the substance excitation that needs to be detected, with an electromagnetic field that propagates on a long distance and is not disturbed by the “electromagnetic noise” from the environment generated by the RF transmitters and other electronic equipments that use electric current or electromagnetic waves.

Simultaneous Detection of Multiple Types of Explosives or Drugs
As mentioned, the ADE651® incorporates electromagnetic attraction [EMA] technology to target specific substances. It can accommodate multiple substance detection through the use of our proprietary sensor-cards to detect a broad range of explosive or drug [narcotic] materials. It can narrow-down this to identify a specific substance by removing the individual detection cards from the unit after first detection, until the attraction is lost.

Ignores All Known Concealment Methods
By programming the detection cards to specifically target a particular substance material, (through the proprietary process of electro-static matching of the charge and structure of the substance), the ADE651® will “by-pass” all currently known attempts to conceal the target. It has been shown in tests to infiltrate Lead, other metals, concrete, and other matter (including hiding inside the body) used in the attempt to block the attracing signal.

No Consumables nor Maintenance Contracts Required
Unlike most Trace Detectors that require the supply of sample traps, the ADE651® does not utilize any consumables (exceptions include: cotton-gloves and cleanser) thereby reducing the operational costs of the equipment. The equipment is Operator maintained and requires no ongoing maintenance service contracts. ADE651® comes with a hardware warranty and since the equipment is powered electro statically, there are no batteries or conventional power
