 Project objective

SENEX Project aims at the industrialization of an innovative table top explosive trace detector that exhibits remarkable and competitive performances in sensitivity and specificity, besides a compact and low-cost architecture. The SENEX device is based on surface plasmonic resonance phenomenon and it fills the growing need of security professionals to have the ability to detect a wide range of explosive substances and to be able to adapt as threats and their needs change. By the use of an innovative automatic microelectronic system based on nano-structured sensors, SENEX system is capable of continuously detecting and identifying explosives during a single analysis, while maintaining high sensitivity. SENEX device has the potential to satisfy all the requirements for the trace detection of explosives because it can overcome all the technical and commercial barriers connected to use of conventional sensors based techniques: Ion Mobility Spectrometry, Gas Chromatography, Computer Tomography, Colorimetry and Chemi-Luminescence. Most of the existing devices are bulky, expensive and require long lasting procedures and complex training activities in the start-up phase. SENEX technology first key market application is transportation security in airports and harbours to detect explosives, weapons, and illegal items in baggage or on passengers, airports threat areas are; another key market application is the freight terminal sectors where currently security explosive controls are often lacking.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "SENEX" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
