Universal Detection Technology, a provider of early-warning monitoring devices for radiological, chemical and biological risks, has declared that it will exhibit its complete range of radiation detection systems as well as chemical weapon and bio-weapon detection devices at the RISCON Security and Trade Expo to be conducted from 19 to 21 October 2011 in Tokyo, Japan.
More than 283 participants, with specialization in safety and security will exhibit their products at the expo sponsored by the Disaster Management Agency, the National Police Agency and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
Radiation detection devices to be displayed by Universal Detection Technology at the expo include sophisticated surface monitors and survey meters utilized to detect contagion on surfaces, especially in water and food, and dosimeter systems utilized to measure collective radiation exposures.
According to the Japanese government, the surrounding areas of the affected nuclear plant in Fukushima would need decades to become habitable due to high radiation. The government estimates that regions with current radiation readings of 200 mSv per year require more than 20 years, while regions at 100 mSv per year need a decade.
The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Universal Detection Technology stated that the company’s participation in the 2011 RISCON Expo in Tokyo will enable it to launch its radiation detection devices to both government organizations participating in calamity aid and to private firms and individuals who find solutions for radiation and exposure, he said.
