DNDO Endorses Smiths Detection’s Portable Detector the RadSeeker

Smiths Detection has declared that the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has given approval to the RadSeeker, which is a portable radiation identifier and detector created together with DNDO.

Smiths Detection-RadSeeker

The RadSeeker is a new radionuclide identifier, which has superior capacities to differentiate between nuclear and radiological threats, and also prevent false alarms which are generated from daily used radiological materials and the radiations that arise naturally. Its superior performance, sturdiness, diminutive size and communication abilities make it perfect for a number of applications such as first responder search, and civil defense operations along with helping workers in the port to scrutinize cargo, vehicles and containers for detecting the presence of dirty bombs and special nuclear materials.

According to Cherif Rizkalla, who is the Chief Commercial Officer at Smiths Detection, the RadSeeker has been achieved by an effective collaboration of both industry and government agencies. He further added that they were glad that the DNDO had given its approval to use the RadSeeker as its principal radiological device against anti-terrorism activities. This detector is being manufactured in the company’s Danbury facility. It has been approved after being tested by laboratories and in the field at several locations by the government.
