In this time of multiple threats to our security: dirty bomb; cyber; shooters in public places; homemade bombs; misinformation; etc. we feel extremely vulnerable; perhaps more vulnerable than ever before.
With the advent of Drone technology now available to private citizens, technology previously only held by the military, the opportunity has come to marry Drone Technology with aerial sensors. Drone mounted aerial sensors are typically: thermal, radar, camera, surveillance, and sensors to monitor the UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) systems.
Now there is the DroneRAD. Radiation detection instruments mounted on a Drone for aerial radiation detection, surveillance, and locating. Technical Associates, a division of US Nuclear Corp, provides sensors for both airborne radiation and for the search and locating of radioactive materials: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Neutron. Gas filter sample collection for chlorine, biological particulates, and aerosols such as anthrax and nerve gas is also available via the DroneRAD.
Technical Associates’ DroneRAD Detector System includes: sensors, software, and readout technology; the Drone with controllers and hard shell case for ease of transporting the full system; and flight and radiation measurement instructions.
Nuclear radiation sensor instrumentation suitable for Drone application is new to the market place. The DroneRAD has a widely diverse application and includes conducting Gamma and/or Neutron Radiation Surveys of the ground, buildings, and vehicles, Uranium Surveys of landfills and K-40; Background Radiation Surveys for construction and development, and Airborne Hazards.
The DroneRAD is versatile and has an approximate launch time of five minutes.
