Smiths Detection has developed a new handheld radiation sector to identify radiological and nuclear threats. According to the company, the RadSeeker offers improved performance capabilities, compactness and durability. It features a wide array of applications, from enabling civil defense and first-responder operations to aiding port and border personnel with cargo, container and vehicle screening. The device can detect threats in all major areas of concern to national and homeland security, including chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive, Smiths said. It can also detect masked and shielded special nuclear materials. RadSeeker meets the requirements of both the industry's ANSI N42.34-2006 performance standard and the Department of Homeland Security's Domestic Nuclear Detection Office. The lightweight instrument maintains accuracy in all operating conditions, through an automatic stabilization process which eliminates the need for field or periodic recalibration.
