  • Real-time, instant Detection, Measurement and Identification
  • Wide dose rate range: from natural background to high accident levels
  • Light and robust
  • Simple and fully automated use
  • 1000 times more sensitive than GM-based detectors

The SPIR-Explorer Sensor allows detection, measurement and identification of radiological sources over a very large range. It is intended to be mounted on demanding carrier, such as UAVs or robots. It may also be used within fixed or deployable systems.
Typical uses are searching for any unexpected radiological sources, checking for radiological risk in case of accident, and mapping of contaminated areas. Operation is fully automated and results are shown and memorized at an associated radiological base station. The sensor uses proven identification techniques from SPIR-Ident and SpiR-ID product family in a smaller and lighter form factor.
