Next-generation radioisotope identifier RadSeeker is the result of several years of collaboration between Symetrica and Smiths Detection to develop a next-generation RIID suitable for secondary screening, small-area search and rapid mobile identification. RadSeeker excels in real-world environments and provides the operator with quick, simple, specific information for threat assessment. Symetrica’s Discovery Technology at the heart of RadSeeker provides best-in-class identification of threat materials in shielded, masked or concealed situations through the coupling of advanced spectrum processing and identification algorithms with state of the art detectors with automatic stabilisation and calibration, eliminating annual maintenance. Radioactive threat detection Commenting on the news, Matthew Dallimore, Symetrica’s General Manager said: “This is a significant milestone for Symetrica and our advanced Discovery Technology that is at the core of Smiths Detection’s RadSeeker. It is the culmination of several years of collaborative development and a strong acknowledgement that our technology is at the leading-edge of radioactive threat detection”. Rob Ledenko, Smiths Detection's Vice President of North America Sales & Business Development, commented: “We are excited to see this contract move into the shipment phase and we recognise the significant contribution of the Symetrica team and their best-in-class technology in making RadSeeker a reality.”
