Arktis was incorporated in 2007. The founding team of Rico Chandra, Giovanna Davatz and Mario Voegeli, formed the company in the wake of a number of major events that highlighted the need to counter the emerging nuclear threat to world security. The team leveraged their extensive understanding of nuclear physics to apply it to the design and production of next generation radiation detection systems. 

Since its inception, Arktis has followed a strategic growth path and employs highly skilled scientists and engineers who have developed proprietary radiation detection technologies based on research originally undertaken at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) on behalf of ETH Zurich, a leading European technical university. A key feature of the innovative detection methods developed by Arktis is that it provides customers with a unique potential to discover shielded nuclear materials such as Plutonium.
