Also known as bomb dogs or bomb sniffing dogs, Explosive Detection Dogs detect a variety of explosive materials near building exteriors, secluded areas, security checkpoints, vehicles, packages, and pedestrians. EDD teams are a strong visible and psychological deterrent against criminal and terrorist threats.

Constellis EDD teams include highly trained detection dogs and experienced handlers. Each canine and handler team work together to conduct searches for a variety of explosive materials near building exteriors, secluded areas, security checkpoints, vehicles, packages, and pedestrians in and around assigned facilities.

Strategic Security​

Explosive Detection Dog teams play a critical role in our comprehensive preventive security measures. We utilize these specialize teams to support strategic explosive detection activities and provide immediate response to bomb threats and other dangerous items.

Preventive Tactics​

These bomb detection activities allow EDD teams to detect or quickly rule out the presence of dangerous materials and allow customers to continue operating with minimal or no interruption.
