Product Overview

Law enforcement, the military, and customs officers never know what they will encounter on the field. The Defender™ Omega Handheld Raman Analyzer is a dependable handheld tool that aids users in identifying compounds utilized in producing explosives, nerve agents, narcotics, and various other chemicals. This analyzer encompasses all the essential elements necessary for chemical identification in critical security and safety scenarios.

User Safety

  • Point-and-shoot, touchless scanning through clear plastic or glass eliminates the need for users to handle unknown materials.
  • Informative results deliver an alert, warning, or other clear indication to assist users in making an immediate decision about what to do.


  • For chemical identification, patented chemometric algorithms are more trustworthy when dealing with multicomponent mixtures and spectrally complex samples.
  • Background fluorescence is effectively suppressed, enabling users to confidently identify substances through distinct spectral fingerprints utilizing 1064 nm optics.

User Flexibility

  • The large touchscreen and illuminated keypad make it simple for users to enter data, even in dimly lit areas.
  • Users of all skill levels can make decisions quickly using the two distinct scan modes (ID or Screener).
  • The ability to accommodate user-generated libraries and adjust to changing risks

Comprehensive Libraries

  • Expandable libraries are useful for identifying industrial chemicals, precursors, controlled substances, explosives, and chemical warfare agents.
  • Users of customizable libraries can find specific materials.
  • Regular library updates assist users in staying up to date on new dangers.

Solid Chain of Custody

  • Time and place stamping is made possible by GPS and digital cameras.
  • Data is kept secure and locked down with a unique user ID and password.
  • User-generated metadata to facilitate a quick and straightforward search of past measurements
  • Log helps users monitor who scanned what substances and when.

Built for Use in the Field

  • Rechargeable and detachable batteries for portable power
  • Wi-Fi access for data exchange
  • WebUI (web user interface) for simple configuration
  • IP68 rated watertight for defense against dust and water
  • MIL-STD-81H durability rating
