Smiths Detection has received an
order of more than US$10 million to supply its RadSeeker, handheld
radioisotope detectors and identifiers for screening at Customs
and Border Protection (CBP) ports of entry.
The order is part of a
five year indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract
with DHS Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO), which was
signed in January 2016.
RadSeeker is a
next-generation radiation detection and identification system. It
can locate the source of radiological material and identifies if
it is harmful or naturally occurring.
RadSeeker is the result of several years
of collaboration between Smiths Detection and the DNDO to develop
a next-generation device suitable for secondary screening,
small-area search and rapid mobile identification.
Shan Hood, President of
SDI, said, “RadSeeker is a great example of how Smiths Detection
works with customers, such as DHS, to create solutions that meet
their needs and prepare them for the future. We look forward to
continuing to develop innovative technology solutions, by working
with DNDO and other agencies, whose mission is to make the world
