The Letterbomb Detector is a compact desk-top electronic mail scanner for letters and small packages. The system will automatically find highly explosive letterbombs and other suspect items of mail such as razor blade letters and cutting devices whilst reliably ignoring office clutter such as paperclips and staples. Over 10,000 units are in use with government departments, police, high security locations and corporate mailrooms.

The Letterbomb Detector is used throughout the world in high security locations as well as in private residences and royal palaces. The system also saved the life of one of the Unabomber’s intended victims by successfully intercepting one of his postal devices.  Unlike many cheap metal detection imitations the Letterbomb Detector is an intelligent discriminating device that will reliably find a small battery while discriminating against paperclips and staples. No other unit can reliably do this.
The system can be used alone or with an x-ray machine as the first line of defence against postal bombs. No special training, expensive maintenance or radiation checks are required.
