About Us

Wheatley SPI, LLC - Security Protection Intelligence

Our story began with the formation in 1975 of Wheatley & Associates, Inc., a design and construction management firm that quickly grew to become an international design/build firm with projects in the Middle East. Security of the project site – and of the finished project – was a significant concern for these projects. Our principals' military and intelligence backgrounds served us well in meeting this concern for our clients. We expanded into general construction – related consulting in 2000, with the formation of Wheatley US Limited, and expanded again with the formation of Wheatley UK Limited the next year. Now, in 2012, we have formed Wheatley SPI, LLC, providing security, protection and intelligence services, technology and products, expanding The Wheatley Companies' (SM) offerings of services and products. Our initial offering is the explosives detection technology of Raptor Detection Technologies ("Raptor").

With Raptor, we are strategically positioned to meet the needs of both government and private sector entities that require security solutions. Our products offer robust detection and forensics collection solutions emanating from the United States National Laboratories and world renowned universities. The patented technology is cutting-edge, yet simple and inexpensive.

Testing by the U.S. government has proven our explosive detection technology to be highly effective.  Our growing number of domestic and international partners and distribution channels allows for customization, rapid implementation and superior support to customers. We are dedicated to the continued development of products with enhanced capability and solutions that meet homeland security’s dynamic and rapidly changing needs.


Developed in the demanding national laboratories of The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, tested by the U.S. Navy, Explosive Ordinace Technical Division (NAVEODTECHDIV), SAFE-T® detection and forensic collection solutions now are available for a broad range of uses by personnel in the military, law enforcement, transportation, event security, bio-medicine and other fields. The secret within SAFE-T® technology is Raptor's patented molecularly imprinted polymers that capture molecules of specifically targeted substances at the nanogram level. Raptor Detection Technologies distributes SAFE-T® products domestically and internationally through our partner network.

Wheatley SPI, LLC and Raptor are ready to help you protect your personnel, your property, your community, and your nation by enhancing and supporting your security, law enforcement, and counter-terrorism missions.
