Radiation Detector (HHRAD)
- A novel Hand held radiation detector was developed to measure radiation levels on collected air sample from inside marine containers. High volume sampling of the container air is carried out and concentration of the vapor and particulates on a nanocarbon coated sample card allows enrichment of the sample for subsequent analysis in the explosive/narcotic detection system TSI-3000.
- Prior to the analysis radiation levels from contaminated dust, debris or other collected microscopic particles is measured in all designated units with default reading in mR/hour.
- The HHRAD unit can be retrofitted with an extension probe that allows it to be inserted inside a marine container or other types of enclosures to area that are not easily accessible by hand search.
