Detective-100T HPGe-based Hand-Held Radioisotope Identifier

Looking for special nuclear material can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. Fertilizers, ceramics, kitty litter, medical patients etc., are all radioactive and can confuse most other instruments. When you can’t afford to be wrong, you need an ORTEC Detective.

  • “Expert Level” Determinations without need for an Expert.
  • Simple to Operate: Bright, Clear Displays, touch sensitive screens, intuitive menus.
  • High resolution gamma spectroscopy with confirmatory neutron detection in EX models.
  • Definitive answers to the detection of illicit nuclear materials (SNM) trafficking in seconds, in a battery operated instrument.
  • Fast, Simple and ULTRA-Reliable Classification of NORM, Medical, Industrial, SNM and Natural Isotopes, shielded and unshielded.
  • Highly resistant to masking source interference.
  • ~20 to 50 times better than even the most advanced NaI and CZT instruments.
  • “-100” models even faster to ID.
  • Highest Sensitivity Detection of Neutron Sources in a hand-held instrument.
  • Gamma-Ray and Neutron Search Modes.
  • SNM Search Mode™ finds SNM sources in the presence of other sources.

Detective-200 Ruggedized, Ultra-High Sensitivity, Transportable HPGe Radionuclide Identification System

The Detective-200 is a radiation identification instrument designed to be compact, highly sensitive and portable to achieve an array of nuclear security objectives, such as mobile, maritime, and chokepoint monitoring.

  • Large Area HPGe Detector (~5675 sq mm) gives definitive identification of illicit nuclear material (SNM) in seconds.
  • 10 times faster to identify HEU than a “conventional” NaI based identifier.
  • Built-in removable 120 degree collimator reduces background interference in field of view.
  • IP67 waterproof, dust proof and shock resistant packaging

Mobile Radiation Detection System Applications

The capability to search for and locate nuclear threat sources is a critical component of the Global Nuclear Detection architecture. Finding nuclear threat sources can be challenging, especially if the sources have been shielded or masked to avoid detection. To address this challenge, ORTEC has developed the Detective-200, a ruggedized, ultra-high-sensitivity, transportable HPGe radionuclide identification system. The Detective-200, based on a large High Purity Germanium (HPGe) detector, not only increases the passive stand-off detection distances, but provides better detection and identification of shielded or masked threat sources with minimal false positives.

  • Mobile Search
  • Choke Point Monitoring
  • Maritime Search

RADEAGLE State-of-the-Art Hand-Held, NaI Radioisotope Identification Device

  • Combining a large, high sensitivity, NaI(Tl) crystal with an intelligent algorithm, the RADEAGLE can quickly, accurately, and simultaneously detect and identify up to six isotopes, typically in under 30 seconds, even in complex shielded or masked scenarios.
  • ANSI 42.34 compliant, the RADEAGLE offers a user-friendly interface that is intuitive, simple to navigate, provides visual clarity, and utilizes an extensive array of alarms.
  • Incorporating decades of industry expertise in detection and identification algorithms along with advanced hardware, electrical, and software systems, the RADEAGLE is the hand-held RIID of choice.
