Kromek, a worldwide supplier of detection technology based in the US has launched a new radioisotope identification device (RIID), D5 RIID is billed as the world’s smallest performance radioisotope identification device.
Developed under a US Department of Defense program, the D5 has an ultra-low false alarm rate and has been designed for military, homeland security and industrial use. It can detect a wide range of sources, including special nuclear material and mixed, shielded and heavily masked configurations. It is the first device to be launched in Kromek’s new D5 product range, which expands the group’s radiation detection portfolio to encompass devices specifically designed for more challenging use in cases and in harsh environments.
The product also has a larger crystal, which enables higher accuracy and sensitivity – capable of detecting mixed, shielded and heavily masked configurations including special nuclear material – as well as being ruggedized.
