In the beginning, our products were mainly specialty instruments and detectors built under contract for the U.S. Navy, including quartz fiber pocket dosimeters and hand held survey meters. In the 1970's WM. B Johnson developed a significant market for very high range telescoping survey meters (utilized around nuclear reactors) and quartz fiber pocket dosimeters, and thereby obtaining the rights to manufacturer a high quality, flexible alpha scintillator used extensively by government and private laboratories to measure radon and special nuclear materials.
