NETPark based Kromek launch new high-performance RIID

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.”

CPI has developed a specialist offering to support SMEs looking to develop their printable electronics applications and our partnership with Business Durham has been instrumental in attracting several SMEs to locate here in the region.

Dr Jon Helliwell, - Director of Printable Electronics, CPI

We initially came because of the printable electronics centre but access to a highly skilled semi conductor workforce in the North East has been a key factor in us staying and growing here, as well as the value for money office space and the access to funding.

Ken Williamson, - COO, PragmatIC Printing

Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at the NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world-class expertise from Durham University.

Steve Clements, - Managing Director, aXenic

The proximity to the universities and the infrastructure are very important factors. Ultimately having a presence in Europe is very valuable to us and we intend to stay at NETPark for many years to come.
