OAKWOOD VILLAGE, Ohio, 15 Sept. 2015. Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. in Oakwood Village, Ohio, is introducing two area radiation monitors for military teams security personnel, and first responders. The high-precision spectroscopy instruments offer several telemetry options.

The Thermo Scientific RadHalo rapid deployment probe (RDP) and fixed monitor (FM) offer hands-free test and measurement technology to monitor dose rate and identify radiation on location or from miles away via five different reachback options.

The RadHalo RDP and the RadHalo FM are designed to deliver high sensitivity and accuracy across a wide range of low to extremely high radiation dose rate levels. The instruments also feature a rugged design for uninterrupted usage in various environments, including certain extreme weather conditions.

The RadHalo line offers to help identify and address radiation threats while focusing their attention on other tasks. Deployed as permanent or mobile radiation monitoring devices, RadHalo instruments are designed to provide high sensitivity measurements and real-time data collection at checkpoints, entrances and large public gatherings, with remote data reachback options as far-reaching as satellite or as close as WiFi. Several RadHalo instruments can be networked wirelessly to expand reach across a large venue or across a city.

Features include built-in reachback capabilities, including WiFi, satellite, radio, cellular and direct wire; several ways to view data, including a mobile app, web interface, and Thermo Scientific ViewPoint command and control software; a high-capacity, wide temperature range 72-hour battery so that the instrument can be deployed and operated for longer shifts; intuitive, modular design; and large spectroscopic gamma detector.
