RedXDefense® Intellectual Property Program
The proprietary fluorescent detection ink glows blue under UV light, but appears dark in the presence of explosives. Thus trace explosives can be easily visualized as dark spots against the blue background of the ink. The simple optical technique allows for simplified engineering into easy-to-use, intuitive detection devices that do not require warm-up time, calibration, or lengthy decontamination procedures.
RedX has purposefully designed explosive detection products, such as the XPAK® and XPAK-i and continue to develop innovative technologies as new threats emerge.
RedXDefense® has an aggressive Intellectual Property development program. RedX’s team of professionals has extensive experience in IP portfolio management, development, and licensing.
In addition to a world-wide exclusive license with the University of California, San Diego, RedX has four issued patents and six original patents pending, covering innovative product designs and advances in the detection technology. This diverse portfolio provides the foundation for RedX‘s pioneering approach to the detection of trace explosives and offers advantages in ruggedness, throughput, cost, reliability, and packaging. Such advances enable widespread use in applications as diverse as military and first responder portable detection, transportation security, critical infrastructure and large venue protection, among others.
RedX‘s team of scientists and engineers continue to advance this and related technologies.
