Core Technology

Our systems are neutron radiation spectrometers that utilize arrays of high efficiency, state of the art, solid-state neutron detection devices. Advanced mathematical analysis of these arrays allows for the detection of the unique energy spectra that are inherent to different neutron sources. This allows for a multitude of uses such as:

  • Locating and identifying neutron sources.
    • Homeland defense
    • Non-proliferation
  • Accurately determining the neutron radiation dose equivalent.
    • Radiation personnel management
    • Nuclear reactor site safety analysis
    • Nuclear event safety
