A standard personal detector and analyzer device, the sensor gauntlet appears as a heavy, open-lingered glove that extends to the elbow. Sensors and electronics line the arm and palm at the hand, and collected data is viewed on a screen located on the back of the hand just above the wrist.
The sensor gauntlet combines several important pieces of equipment. First, it's a broad-band electromagnetic scanner that can detect and classify any kind of radiated electromagnetic energy. Second, it includes a spectrometer and an advanced chemical sniffer that can determine the elemental composition of any normal, unshielded object. Finally. the sensor gauntlet can link with a radio or comm gear to transmit data or can record its findings on a data disk for later retrieval and detailed examination.
