If within the past few years you received a package, roamed a shopping centre, boarded a plane, train, ferry or cruise ship, went to a major sporting event, ran a marathon, attended a concert, gambled at a casino or visited a tourist attraction, chances are a dog made sure it was safe for you to do so.
With terrorists increasingly attacking so-called soft targets, the demand for detection dogs that can sweep large areas for explosives has soared. Technological alternatives have so far proven inadequate. Despite decades of trying, researchers have yet to develop a machine as exquisitely sensitive and discerning as a dog’s nose. Nor can a robot rove with the agility and ease of a dog.
The use of Alpha K9’s highly trained dogs to investigate and identify potentially dangerous devices can be a highly effective and efficient way to improve security at your facility. Bomb sniffing, or detection, dogs are often seen at work at the nation’s airports, corporate warehouses, logistic checkpoints, or other high-traffic venues, that require optimal safety. Terrorists are always looking to exploit security vulnerabilities in these venues, which is why the proper deterrence and defensive solutions must always be in place.
Alpha K9 Security use SOKKS-MPTS as our primary training aid. These training aids will condition the dog to detect even the smallest amount of explosive, military, commercial or home-made including SEMTEX, HMTD and TATP. Dogs trained with SOKKS-MPTS™ Explosives can find explosives that elude even the most advanced detection equipment that is currently in use at many airports. SOKKS-MPTS™ Explosives trained dogs have been tested on and have detected:
Ammonia- Gel Ammonia-Nitrate Hexogen (RDX)- Potassium Chloride- Potassium Nitrate- Sodium Chlorate Nitro-Glycerine- Nitro-Cellulose TNT- ALL Dynamites- Water Gels- Oktogen (HMX) Smokeless Powder- Black Powder- Gun Powder- Chlorates- PETN = Nitropenta- TATP- HMTD
SOKKS-MPTS® Explosives first entered services with the Austrian Police and has since become the standard in detector dog training for the police forces. Using SOKKS you will not need licences, bunkers, special containers and vehicles for the possession, transportation and storage of explosives. Due to its unique manufacturing, SOKKS Explosives is completely harmless and can be carried in the field by each handler and simply stored in the office. You can train anywhere, anytime since there is absolutely no risk of fire or explosion. Even a lost training aid is useless to anyone that finds it as it is impossible to reverse the process and extract the explosives molecules.
