sniff sniff... fredd's on the job in the uk
Free-running explosive detection dogs (FREDDs) working in close partnership with their human handlers are being used to check freight for a range of explosive materials in cargo sheds at British airports. The dogs are being deployed alongside existing screening methods, subsequently offering a rapid and effective way of screening large volumes of air cargo.
While all cargo is made secure before it’s allowed on to aircraft, the dogs offer the ability to detect minute traces of vapour from concealed explosives. This provides a high level of scrutiny as well as a highly mobile and time-saving way of screening freight, 2.4 million tonnes of which passed through the UK’s airports in 2016. More details here
