Smiths Detection Inc. Wins Award From DNDO for Handheld Radseeker Detectors

February 24, 2016  | 

Smiths Detection Inc. (SDI) announced an initial award of $1.27 million for its RadSeeker handheld radioisotope detector and identifier under a five-year indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with the DHS Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO).

Radseeker is a next-generation, self-calibrating, and highly accurate radiation detection system. The handheld device locates the source of radiological material and is used by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), emergency responders and law enforcement agents around the world.

RadSeeker's enhanced capability distinguishes radiological and nuclear threats from naturally occurring radiation or other legitimate everyday radiological materials. It was specifically designed to meet DHS's mission requirements for a next-generation system capable of detecting and identifying varied nuclear threats.

Stephen Esposito, Interim President of SDI, said, "Under a competitively-awarded contract RadSeeker was developed in cooperation with the DHS to help keep our country safe from the threat of nuclear and radiological proliferation. It's another example of how we work with our customers to understand their needs and then leverage our experience as the world leader for threat detection technology to create solutions that meet the challenge."
