The Insight100™ is a liquid explosive detection system (LEDS) based on Cobalt’s proprietary SORS™ technology. This uniquely allows liquids to be screened through a wide-range of non-metallic containers in just 5 seconds
Exceptional Detection with an Ultra-low False Alarm Rate
Threats Identified and Named Onscreen
- ECAC standard 3 (Type B and A)
- False alarm rate consistently below 1% operationally
- Fast and easy to use, always 5 second scans
- Detects and identifies threat liquids
- Very large install base (in Europe and Australia)
- Screens non-metallic containers; identifies metal
Proven in the field
The Insight100 range has proven low false alarm rates (FAR) in the field as well as in laboratory tests. Operational FARs for non-metallic items from the first phase of LAGs screening in Europe are consistently better than 1%. Bottled water is especially impressive with FARs of just 1 in 4,000 bottles (≈0.02%) across a broad range of bottles and types of water.

False alarm rates of the Insight100 system as a stand-alone machine
All of Cobalt's Insight scanners can be continuously monitored and managed by a centralised software system – the Overview Management Server. The software enables scheduled reporting for regulatory compliance monitoring.
Flexible Insight100 System Deployment
Stand-alone or Combination Use
The Insight100 screens partially filled containers as well as STEBS and unusual bottle shapes/sizes. The system has no problem screening containers of 100ml or greater as well as large containers up to 3l. The Insight100 can also screen combustible liquids.
The Insight100 has a very high operational reliability with an MTBF (mean time between failure) typically well above one year.
The Insight100 has been deployed in more than 65 airports throughout Europe and Australia either as a stand-alone unit, or commonly in combination with Type C LEDS or other Type B systems. The typical false alarm rates in such combinations are consistently the best available compared to competitor systems.
