Smiths Detection announces an order of more than $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 contract with DHS Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO), which was announced in January of 2016.
RadSeeker is a next-generation, highly accurate radiation detection and identification system. It can locate the source of radiological material and identifies whether it is harmful. 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. RadSeeker excels in complex real-world environments providing the operator with quick, simple, specific information for threat assessment.
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 safer.”
