Arktis Radiation Detectors Ltd.

- Model MODES_SNM - Mobile Radiation Monitoring System



Arktis MODES_SNM is a highly modular, customizable platform that detects and identifies radiological and nuclear materials. The mobile radiation monitoring system is also available to be kept ready for rapid deployment in emergencies. Mobile radiation monitoring systems have the versatility to cover a broad spectrum of radiation detection missions. While deployed for daily use in port security and law enforcement, they can be kept ready for rapid deployment in emergencies that could include reactor accidents, heightened terrorism threats, recovery actions for lost or stolen nuclear materials, or intelligence driven operations.

  • High radiation detection performance
  • Versatile and mission-configurable
  • Minimal training needed
  • Peripherals (cameras and occupancy sensors)
  • Reliable high speed screening
  • Low false alarm rate: Less than 1 out of 10,000 passages
  • User friendly software and GUI
  • 3He-free neutron detection technology (no dependence on scarce material)
  • Data transfer to a network or central alarm station
  • Compatible with third party software - integration supported

Three functionality packages allow the mobile radiation detection system to be configured for each customer's mission.

Detection Technology
Gamma Detectors: MODES_SNM combines proven conventional technology with leading edge proprietary detectors to provide the best performance in its class:

  • NaI(Tl) crystals offer good efficiency and energy resolution over a wide energy range. They are equally sensitive to the gamma signatures of Special Nuclear Material (SNM), Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM), industrial and medical sources.
  • Proprietary xenon based detectors combine good energy resolution with exceptional sensitivity for low energy gamma signatures. The detectors have an unparalleled signal-tobackground for signatures of SNM. They are less prone to false alarms from fluctuating backgrounds while driving.

Neutron detectors (3 He-free): Proprietary Rugged-by-Design detectors offer sensitivity for both fast and thermal neutrons. Discrimination between thermal and fast neutrons is a feature unique to this technology, affording superior signal-to-background characteristics. Using SiPM based technology provides for a compact and fully integrated detector.

MODES_SNM Software
Data fusion and spectral identification algorithms analyze data streams from detectors and peripherals to reduce false alarms, provide GPS marked dose rates, and identify/classify sources.

  • Detection Performance: Compliant with ANSI 42.43
  • Communications:
    • Via graphical user interface (GUI): Wireless, Ethernet/LAN (optional)
    • External data transmission: GSM (encrypted)
