They use them to examine rocket parts after tests, before safety is determined.

I don't know of any at Tesla plants.

Do they sniff the rocket parts? 🤣
If they don't already, adding that feature would be a good idea.

Some rocket fuels (specifically the one used in the SpaceX capsule thrusters) are toxic to humans.

The fuel: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monomethylhydrazine
MMH is believed to be the main cause of the toxicity of mushrooms of genus Gyromitra, especially the false morel (Gyromitra esculenta). In these cases, MMH is formed by the hydrolysis of gyromitrin.[6]

Monomethylhydrazine is considered to be a possible occupational carcinogen,[7] and the occupational exposure limits to MMH are set at protective levels to account for the possible carcinogenicity.[8]
The problem: The local boaters clearly haven't received the safety briefing for the landing procedures, or even read the MSDS for SpaceX's thruster fuel. Also, flying the flag of political candidate who frequently and flippantly dismissed experts would strongly suggests that some of these boaters hadn't done their homework on the flight-safety issues in play here. Based on my experience flying gliders, you really want everyone on site to have had the safety briefing when you land, because newbies often miss things which seem obvious. Fortunately, all of the things you need to know can easily be taught -- which is why we do the safety briefing.


Conclusion:
It's likely that SpaceX's Boca Chica launches will involve the same thruster fuel at some point (if it doesn't already), so sending in a sniffer device through the site after a rocket landing to make sure the air on site is safe to breathe sounds like a pretty sensible precaution.

Should have Elon heads on them.

Or have robotic security guards that are Elon life-likes.
