TORONTO -- March 19, 2013
Smiths Detection has won an order for RadSeeker, its next-generation, portable
radiation detector and identifier, from the Canada Border Services Agency
(CBSA). The hand-held devices will be used to enhance security and screening
measures throughout Canada, including key entry points at Montreal, Vancouver,
RadSeeker provides a superior capability to distinguish radiological and
nuclear threats from naturally occurring radiation or other legitimate
radiological materials by utilizing its advanced software.
Lance Roncalli, Smiths Detection’s Vice President of Sales, Americas, said:
“RadSeeker is best- in-class technology to help Canada protect its citizens
from nuclear and radiological threats while maintaining a free flow of trade.
Its technological advantages, exceptional reliability and Smiths Detection’s
globally-recognized service and training, make it a cost-efficient way to
detect radiation threats at Canada’s borders.”
RadSeeker is deployed by governments around the world, helping resolve nuclear
threat alarms during screening of cargo containers at borders and points of
entry. It was originally developed with support, in part, from the Domestic
Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO), a jointly staffed agency within the US
Department of Homeland Security.
