The RadSeeker is a handheld, portable, rugged and highly accurate
radioisotope detector and identifier. The RadSeeker was specifically
designed to meet the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) mission
requirements for a next-generation system capable of detecting and
identifying nuclear threat materials.
The RadSeeker offers superior identification capabilities that are
based on Symetrica’s Discovery Technology™. This technology couples
advanced spectrum processing and identification algorithms with a choice
of highly sensitive 1.5 x 1.5in Lanthanum Bromide (LaBr3) or 2 x 2in
Sodium Iodide (NaI) detectors resulting in superior accuracy which is
unique and exclusive to Smiths Detection. This sophisticated detector
system is capable of resolving complex masking scenarios and exceeds all
ANSI N42.34 (2006) requirements for the identification of bare,
shielded and multiple isotopes.
The RadSeeker is easy to use while supplying the operator with quick,
simple, specific information for threat assessment. Applications include
Customs inspection, border protection, emergency response, and
radiological facilities/personnel monitoring.
RadSeeker and Cargo Inspection
The RadSeeker can be used during a search or screening scenario in
order to detect radioactive sources and then clearly identify whether
the radioactive material uncovered is harmless naturally occurring
radiation or a more dangerous source, such as special nuclear materials
or those consistent with a “dirty bomb”. For each source identified the
RadSeeker provides a risk assessment describing the source as innocent
or a threat, removing all the guess work from the operator.
RadSeeker and Emergency Response
In an emergency situation, radiological response teams can quickly and
accurately determine whether or not a source is present and the level of
threat it represents. The built-in wireless capabilities which include
both WiFi 802.11 and satellite phone interface provide those in a remote
command center easy access to information such as the threat
identified, source spectra and the location of the device/operator. In a
situation that is deemed unsafe to send a responder down range the
RadSeeker can be placed mechanically while monitoring and controlling
the device from a safe distance.
