microRaider™

The microRaider™ is designed to monitor radiation and warn users if increased radiation levels are detected. The microRaider™ is capable of detecting gamma radiation as well as thermal neutrons (optional). In addition to the features provided by standard PRDs, the microRaider™ also allows users to qualitatively analyze a detected gamma radiation source by identifying the isotopes using a template matching algorithm. The microRaider™ comes equipped with three (3) Cadmium-Zinc-Telluride (CZT) detectors. Two of these detectors are called finder detectors, and they are used to monitor the gamma dose rate. The third detector, a high resolution detector, is used for nuclide identification. For counting thermal neutrons, one (1) optional 3He proportional counter is used. The microRaider™ operates in two primary modes: Unattended Surveillance Mode (USM) and User Attended Mode (UAM). UAM allows users to interact with the microRaider™, whereas the device runs unattended in USM. In USM, the device constantly monitors gamma dose rate and neutron count rate (optional). A green status LED indicates that the device is active and running. If the user defined alarm levels are exceeded, the display is powered up and visual, audible, and tactile (via vibration motor) indications are given.
