radiation detection equipment

County Durham’s Kromek has secured a £554,000 ($695,000) order to provide wearable radiation detection equipment to a customer in the US.


The repeat order from a US federal organisation follows the awarding of a £1.2m ($1.6m) two-year contract in September 2021 and will help armed forces, border security and chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear experts to detect threats such as dirty bombs and radioactive contamination.


Kromek’s D3S-ID equipment is said to be one of the fastest and most accurate isotope identification devices on the market for first responders.


Dr Arnab Basu, CEO of Kromek, said: “We’re pleased to have received this latest order for our D3S-ID nuclear radiation detector that provides security authorities with an early warning system for potential threats. Being awarded a repeat order for this product from this important customer is a great endorsement.


“With the volatility of the current geopolitical environment, we are receiving heightened demand for our CBRN solutions, from new and existing customers, as governments become increasingly aware of the need to enhance their real-time threat monitoring.
