Thermo Fisher Scientific has announced the Thermo Scientific Matrix ARIS Mobile Detection System, an advanced integrated solution for radiation survey and mobile security applications. Its light weight design allows for easy mounting into a standard SUV, boat or other vehicle, as well as portable packaging such as a large suitcase. Utilising Sandia National Laboratory fit2db spectroscopic identification technology, the system uses the power of Thermo Scientific's patented Natural Background Rejection (NBR) technology and the proprietary ARIS Advanced Radioisotope Identification System with the Thermo Scientific ViewPoint Enterprise real-time monitoring and analysis software.

The Matrix ARIS system consists of three primary component groups: gamma and neutron probes, the ARIS radioisotope identification system, and a rugged laptop running the National Lab tested ViewPoint Enterprise Survey Client that makes it possible to easily survey an area and determine the background radiation contour. These background profiles or area contours can be established for control areas in advance of public events, reducing false alarms and increasing detection capability. The survey data, correlated with GPS mapping coordinates, are saved for baseline comparison with gamma and neutron readings taken at specific locations during periodic patrols. When radiation readings are above user-selected levels, the system automatically triggers an alarm to notify the operator.

When the alarm occurs, the operator can initiate the ARIS system to automatically identify isotopes tagged with links to the stored isotope information profiles. This system integration capability enhances the field operator's ability to identify threats and take appropriate action, all without requiring any gamma spectroscopy expertise. In addition, the Matrix ARIS Mobile can be integrated with the Thermo Scientific RadReachBack communications system to provide a continuous, real-time data communications link with a command centre, expert analysis facility or secondary-level response personnel.

"The Matrix ARIS system offers unparalleled flexibility and advanced, integrated technology to produce a fast, mobile and intelligent system," said Johnny Long, global product line manager for Integrated Solutions. "Not only are errors reduced by freeing operators from constant monitoring or needing to interpret data during alarm events, but the Thermo Scientific system actually increases incident response accuracy in advance of public events, using already established levels of alarm conditions at control locations. Coupled with the precise, real-time monitoring capability of the ViewPoint Enterprise platform, the Matrix ARIS mobile detection system means that 'nothing is out of reach.'"
