The RadSeeker is a handheld, rugged and highly accurate radioisotope detector and identifier. The RadSeeker was specifically designed to meet the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) mission requirements for a next-generation system capable of detecting and identifying varied nuclear threats.

The RadSeeker offers superior radiation detection and identification capabilities that are based on Symetrica’s Discovery Technology. This technology couples advanced spectrum processing and identification algorithms with a choice of highly sensitive detectors resulting in superior accuracy which is unique and exclusive to Smiths Detection. This sophisticated radiation detection system exceeds all ANSI N42.34 (2006) requirements for the identification of bare, shielded and multiple isotopes.

The RadSeeker is easy to use while supplying the operator with quick, simple, specific information for threat assessment. Applications include Customs inspection, border protection, emergency response, and radiological facilities/personnel monitoring.
