Kromek has launched a new high performance radioisotope identification device (RIID), which is thought to be the smallest available in the world.
The D5 RIID, with ultra-low false alarm rate, is designed for military, homeland security and industrial use.
It was developed in a programme alongside the Defense Threat Reduction Agency of the US Department of Defense.
The D5 detects a wide range of sources, including special nuclear material and mixed, shielded and heavily masked configurations.
Dr Arnab Basu, chief executive of Kromek, said: “We are delighted to have launched the D5 RIID, which truly sets a new benchmark in radioisotope identification.
“The level of accuracy, combined with small size, far exceeds competing military standard detectors, enabling the rapid identification of radiological threats.
“As the first of our new D5 range, this device expands our portfolio to provide products ideal for use in harsh environments and for more challenging applications alongside our existing D3 solutions that are aimed at fleet deployment for large-scale networking across urban areas.”
