The PALM HELD WEAPON METAL DETECTOR FOR PERSONAL SEARCH
“MARS - EXPERT”

The specific feature of “MARS - EXPERT”, developed by our Company, is utilization of the signal extraction method for detection presence of metal in the searched area by measuring the delay time between the transmitted electromagnetic pulses and the registered ones with the help of the tranceiving search coil in the portable metal detector for personal search of such a small size.

The usage of this method of separation of the transmitted and registered signals allowed us to develop a handy mini metal detector that is effective in work, simple in application and inexpensive in production.

The microprocessor with the special processing software embedded in "MARS - EXPERT" allows to avoid manual factory adjustment.

1. The “MARS - EXPERT” is a simple, inexpensive electronic device intended for detection of weapons and small pieces of metal by personal search.
It can be used in airports, railway stations, ports, in the time of public events etc.
Our “MARS - EXPERT ” project was based on our experience and knowledge obtained during the period of 14 years of the development, production and sale of the “MARS-D” detector (the device of a larger size) in which we manufactured many thousands of that device for the
Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia.

2.
Customhouses, police departments, different security units and public security companies etc can be potential buyers of  “MARS - EXPERT".

3. “MARS - EXPERT ” features and benefits.
The specific feature of “MARS - EXPERT ”, developed by our Company, is utilization of the signal extraction method for detection of metal in the searched area by measuring the delay time between the transmitted electromagnetic pulses and the registered ones with the help of the tranceiving search coil.
This signal extraction method was never used before In portable metal detectors for personal search of such a small size.

System's crucial components:

1. transceiving search coil,
2. driver,
3. signal processing module - «еmbedded microprocessor»,
4. display unit.

The usage of this method of separation of the transmitted and registered signals allowed us to develop a handy mini metal detector that is effective in work, simple in application and inexpensive in production.
At present, we develop a “MARS - EXPERT ” version with еmbedded microprocessor and special processing software to extend the device performance and to avoid manual factory adjustment.

6. The “MARS - EXPERT ” is ready for serial production.

7. Developed by  “iOPTICS” the signal processing electronic circuit and the Software are the Company’s “know-how”.

8. The proprietary rights for the “MARS - EXPERT ” belong to “iOPTICS”    

The project has been developed under the direction of the founder of "iOPTICS" Semion Savransky.
