Class: Person-Borne Explosives Detection K-9s

K2 has developed the Person-Borne Explosives Detection Dog (PB-EDD) capability, through which canines and their handlers are trained to recognize scent trail signatures on a mobile target. The capability unmasks the growing threat of hidden, yet mobile, explosives and puts detection in the hands of security units. This creates a non-threatening, yet effective means of searching locations such as mass-transit hubs, schools, universities, sporting events, and locations that would host a large crowd. K2 is currently the only company awarded the Department of Homeland Security SAFETY Act Designation for the Person-Borne Explosives Detection Dog Technology, which provides liability protection for damages resulting from an act of terrorism.
