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.
