Smiths Enters Radiation Detection Partnership
Smiths Detection has announced a partnership with Mirion Technologies that will allow it to offer a full radiation detection and identification product line to US customers. Its technology suite will now meet all the needs of multiple security markets, including: military/defence, homeland security, ports and borders, aviation and emergency response.

Lance Roncalli, Smiths Detection’s VP of Sales – Americas, said: “This exciting partnership will ensure our customers can access the full range of radiation technologies available in the marketplace today. Such developments support all our customers as they develop a comprehensive and layered security approach to protect critical infrastructure and secure the free flow of trade.”

Smiths Detection, which already markets the RadSeeker, an advanced handheld radiation detector and identifier, will be able to offer a wide range of Mirion products including a low-cost dosimeter (DMC-3000), a pocket-sized detector (RDS-31) and a search and radionuclide identifier (PDS 100 G/GN ID).

RadSeeker is a next-generation radionuclide identifier with enhanced capability to distinguish radiological and nuclear threats and eliminate the background "false positives" produced by naturally occurring radiation or other legitimate everyday radiological materials.

Smiths Detection designs and makes advanced solutions to detect and identify threats including explosives, chemical agents, biohazards, nuclear, radiation, narcotics, weapons and contraband. A market leader worldwide in providing layered security technologies, Smiths Detection has major plants in three U.S. states. It partners federal and state government agencies and first responders to strengthen homeland security and safeguard the military. Major customers include the Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It is part of Smiths Group, a global leader in the practical application of advanced technologies. Smiths Group employs around 23,000 people, including more than 9,000 in the US where it operates around 100 sites in 40 states.
