Q. How does an X-ray simulant work?
Q. Do you have a shoe bomb simulant?
Q. Don't X-rays look for metal objects?
Q. Who invented X-rays?
A. This class of materials can be compared to props, designed
to trigger a threat assessment at the screening point. Some simulants may
actually look like bombs, but there's a lot more to it.
A. Trick question. X-rays wern't invented by anybody. They
are a naturally occuring light wave discovered on November 8, 1895 by William
A. Our High-energy X-ray NESTT can be formed into any shape...
like this frog. It's malleable and can simulate Semtex, C4 and other military
A. Sure, X-rays see metal like the nails in the shoe heel.
But baggage screening equipment also highlights materials and densities that
match explosives. Our simulants duplicate these densities. A simple visual
inspection might not reveal the danger but the material density does.
