Guardian Predator

The Guardian Predator® backpack is available in two standard configurations. Each configuration includes gamma ray and neutron detection using different detector type arrays: PVT with Neutron Sensitive Solid State Scintillating Glass Lithium Fiber. Optional NaI (TI) gamma spectroscopy configuration is also available which enables the Guardian Predator® to perform radionuclide identification along with collection of spectrum for reach-back analysis. Multiple detector types can be mixed and matched to provide custom configurations.
