Smiths Detection has launched a new handheld radiation detector, the RadSeeker, to identify radiological and nuclear threats.

The device has a wide array of applications from enabling civil defense and first responder rad-nuc search operations to helping port and border personnel with cargo, container and vehicle screening.

Dr. Brian Boso, Smiths Detection Chief Scientist, said, RadSeeker puts the most powerful and accurate radiation detection capabilities literally in the palm of the hand. We believe it will greatly increase accuracy, efficiency, and versatility in finding and identifying rad-nuc threats. Smiths Detection is now able to provide technology that can detect threats in all major areas of concern to national and homeland security, including: chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive.

Designed to meet the requirements of both the industrys ANSI N42.34 (2006) performance standard and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO), Radseeker identifies rad-nuc threat materials, including masked and shielded Special Nuclear Materials (SNMs). It maintains accuracy in all operating conditions through a patent-pending 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. The RadSeeker has already passed extensive testing by government and test laboratories.
