Smiths Detection launched a new, more accurate and capable handheld radiation detector – the “RadSeeker” – to identify radiological and nuclear threats. The device, with superior performance capabilities, small size, and durability, has a wide array of applications from enabling civil defense and first responder rad-nuc searchoperations to helping port and border personnel with cargo, container and vehicle screening.
Designed to meet the requirements of both the industry’s ANSI N42.34-2006 performance standard and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Domestic Nuclear Detection Office(DNDO), Radseeker offers greater speed and accuracy in detecting and identifying rad-nuc threat materials, including masked and shielded Special Nuclear Materials (SNMs). It maintains accuracy in all operating conditions through a automatic stabilization process that eliminates the need for field or periodic recalibration.
RadSeeker is a lightweight instrument for use in all field operating conditions, since it is ruggedized against the effects of impact as well as extreme temperatures and weather conditions. Manufactured in Smiths Detection’s facility in Danbury, Connecticut, the RadSeeker has passedextensive testing by government and test laboratories.
