Trace Eye-D and it’s founders were the subject of a recent company profile by the Business Observer, a weekly newspaper for business leaders across Florida. The article offers an inside look to the inception of Trace Eye-D’s trace explosive detection technology to the company’s journey as a startup.
It all started in Paris.
The 2015 City of Light attacks involved terrorists at multiple locations using assault weapons and explosives to harm civilians. Watching news footage of the attacks, Barry Gorski had an idea.
He wanted to help develop a product that could quickly test for the presence of explosives made with peroxide, an ingredient in some homemade bombs. Gorski shared his thoughts with Chris Baden, a Bradenton resident whom he had worked with on past entrepreneurial projects involving vehicle-mounted power and security technology… READ MORE
TAMPA Fla. – Trace Eye-D, a technology research and development startup in Florida, filed a patent application revealing a new technology late last year, which is designed to detect and identify explosive compounds quickly and easily.
The new technology was developed over the course of two years at the company’s Sarasota, Florida facility and is capable of chemically detecting the presence or absence of an explosive substance on a surface within seconds.
Leaders from Trace Eye-D believe the technology is a significant breakthrough in the fight against domestic terrorism because it gives law enforcement and security personnel the ability to rapidly screen areas or individuals for explosive materials, without the need for additional equipment.
“There is a major need for convenient and accurate on-site detection systems that are able to rapidly detect explosive compounds and their precursors,” said Chris Baden, CEO of Trace Eye-D. “The technology we have created is a critical step forward and when adopted can create an extra layer of security for systems already in place.”
Researchers from Trace Eye-D believe the new detection technology is ideal for use by security screeners at airports, public transit hubs, entertainment and sports venues, and any public or private venue where there may be a threat.
