Fast detection of isotopes crossing a bridge

Finding radioactive material at a bridge crossing

The D3S NET was being used by a police officer (as part of their standard CBRNE equipment) sitting in their patrol car watching a very busy bridge between two large metropolitan areas. On average cars travel over 30mph on this bridge which has over 100,000 vehicles crossing per day.

The D3S radiation detector was on the officers’ equipment harnesses as they sat behind the steering wheel of the patrol car.

Kromek Group plc designs, develops and produces x-ray and gamma-ray imaging and radiation detection products for the medical, CBRNe security, Homeland Security and civil nuclear radiation detection markets.
