SMITHS DETECTION RECEIVES US BRIDGE CONTRACT FOR HANDHELD RADIATION DETECTORS

$10.2 million in RadSeeker orders from Domestic Nuclear Detection Office
(DNDO)

DANBURY, Conn., April 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Smiths Detection today
announces a $10.2 million order from a Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
office for its next-generation, self-calibrating radiation detection system,
RadSeeker.

Fred Facemire, Director of Technology, Smiths Detection said: "RadSeeker's
efficiency in identifying real threats and reliability makes it the right tool
to help protect our nation's borders. The low cost of ownership combined with
Smiths Detection's globally-recognized training and service support make
RadSeeker an excellent overall value for the Department of Homeland Security
and our other customers." 

Used by Customs and Border Protection (CBP), emergency responders and law
enforcement agents around the world, the hand-held RadSeeker locates the
source of radiological material. Unlike other systems, its enhanced capability
distinguishes radiological and nuclear threats from naturally occurring
radiation or other legitimate everyday radiological materials.

The bridge contract is from the DHS's Domestic Nuclear Detection Office
(DNDO).
