EDGEWOOD, Md.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Smiths Detection Inc. (SDI) today announces an order of more than $10
million to supply its RadSeeker handheld radioisotope detectors and
identifiers for screening at Customs and Border Protection (CBP) ports
of entry. The order is part of a five year indefinite
delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with DHS Domestic Nuclear
Detection Office (DNDO), which was announced in January of 2016.
RadSeeker is a next-generation, highly accurate radiation detection and
identification system. It can locate the source of radiological material
and identifies if it is harmful or naturally occurring. RadSeeker is the

the DNDO to develop a next-generation device suitable for secondary
screening, small-area search and rapid mobile identification. RadSeeker
excels in complex real-world environments, providing the operator with
quick, simple, specific information for threat assessment.
