for protecting borders domestic and international of the illegal transport of radioactive materials

System composed of a highly sensitive scintillation detector with a high-speed micro-processing system, fixed to a strategic point.

Globalsonics has developed the ARMDS Lite to help on national security matters by monitoring the objects entrance.

By using the Automatic Radiation Detection Measurement Lite it is possible to avoid the illegal traffic of radioactive objects inside luggage for example, there is not necessary stop the object.

The system is calibrated to area background levels, and any changes in this constant will be considered a detectable event, activating visual and audible alarms. This indicates the presence of a radioactive isotope.

Automatic Radiation Detection Measurement Lite (ARMDS Lite) is a system composed of a highly sensitive scintillation detector with a high-speed micro processing system, fixed to a strategic point.

To improve the performance, use the Austral-Rad Mini survey meter which allows for extremely sensitive and rapid monitoring to take place.
