3. RadEye Personal Radiation Detector (PRD
Available from LAURUS Systems Inc.
The so-called “orphan source” phenomena is a serious global problem as sources showing up unexpectedly in scrap yards, border crossings, or numerous other public locations are a significant potential threat. The RadEye PRD represents a high-performance measuring device for anyone responsible for finding radiation sources whether they be first preventers (border guards, customs agents, special forces or counter terrorism teams) or first responders (emergency services and law enforcement). The RadEye PRD is 5000 - 100000 times more sensitive than a typical electronic dosimeter.
When looking for Nuclear Weapons, Improvised Nuclear Devices (IND's) or Radiological Dispersal Devices (RDD's or dirty bombs), it is of paramount importance that you have high sensitivity with high selectivity. The RadEye PRD achieves this through a special technique based on our patented Natural Background Rejection (NBR) technology. It is the only instrument of its type and size to achieve this. The RadEye PRD incorporates a high sensitivity NaI (Tl) scintillation detector with a miniature photo-multiplier allowing the detection of very low radiation levels with particular emphasis on gamma emissions below 400 keV.
