A new PRD Personal Radiation Detector from Kromek
The D3S PRD personal radiation detector from Kromek is a high‐speed PRD or SPRD (spectroscopic radiation detector) replacement that is a cost‐effective radiation detection and preliminary identification device that put a very powerful and sensitive radiation detector into the hands of first‐line users.The detector consists of two parts:
1. A palm‐sized detector unit that houses the gamma and neutron detection modules.
2. A rugged mobile phone that has the unit readouts and analysis software.
Making the detector in two‐parts allowed Kromek to fit the largest volume detectors into the module, while keeping it palm‐sized. It also means Kromek can fit a neutron detector as standard. Neutron detection is a vital part of CBRNE Homeland Security because it increases the chance of detection from shielded radioactive sources. Large volume detectors give users the edge. The large radiation detector volume means the device can find and identify radioactive material quickly and is much less prone to false alarms.
Using the phone as the display and for some of the computing means that you get a big easy to use screen, with communications back to your HQ already built in. See the D3S display in more details on this page dedicated to the detector app.
PRD Personal Radiation Detector from Kromek is easy to carry and use covertly. Fit it on your belt, equipment vest or MOLLE backpack using a range of holsters or slip it inyour pockets and carry it covertly. One of the benefits of making the phone the displaymeans that no one will suspect that you are checking for radioactive material. The D3S ships in either its own rugged case or in cases which hold ten at a time (this case also acts as a charging station for detector and phone).
The D3S PRD is designed for:
