Ion Mobility Spectrometry



Detect chemical and radiological threats with a single system, as well as Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TIC). The Bruker RAID XP is ideal for perimeter monitoring, and can also be mounted on vehicles.


  • Combined chemical & nuclear detection
  • Gamma dose & accumulated dose
  • Vehicle mounts available
  • Chemical detection only option available


  • Perimeter monitoring
  • Naval & littoral locations
  • Counter-terrorism & civil defence
  • Ships, mobile labs, reconnaissance & emergency response

The Bruker RAID XP detects, identifies and continuously monitors Chemical Warfare Agents (CWA) & Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TIC) using a high-end Ion Mobility Spectrometer. Semiconductor sensors and two photo diodes simultaneously detect and quantify gamma radiation, dose rate and accumulated dose.

Clear Results

Monitor results easily with a clear, dual display. When a substance is detected, the screen shows its standard threat code, appropriate abbreviation or classification for certain TIC, along with the threat level. The RAID-XP detects gamma radiation using PiN diodes, and displays the gamma dose rate and accumulated gamma dose.

Warning thresholds can be set by the user with both audible and visual alarms. Results from both sensors are recorded on the internal memory, along with the time and location, with a GPS input.

Vehicle Mounting

The RAID-XP can be installed on ships, reconnaissance vehicles, mobile labs, and civilian and police emergency response vehicles. It can run from vehicle power or its own rechargeable battery.

Accessories are available for easy installation. These include gas-tight connections for taking samples from outside the vehicle and external sample probes, and returning air outside after analysis.

Data can be transferred to the vehicle’s hazard warning software using RS-232, or RS-422 (optional).


Two models are available, both with a choice of ionisation sources:

  • RAID-XP – Dual chemical and nuclear detection.
  • RAID-P – Chemical detection only.

Ionisation Sources

Choose the ionisation source that best suits your needs:

  • 63Ni sources – A lower cost option.
  • HEPI (High Energy PhotoIonisation) – More suitable for when systems will be stored for periods of time before deployment.

Both versions have identical chemical detection capabilities, the same detection limits and share the same consumables. Having a mixture of the two models does not increase logistics requirements.
