Kromek has received an order from a US federal entity for delivery of its D3S-ID wearable nuclear radiation detector.
This is a repeat order for the D3S-ID from this customer, following the award of a $1.6 million two-year contract in September 2021. This new order is worth $695,000 and will be delivered in the coming months.
The D3S-ID is designed to enable first responders, armed forces, border security and other Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) experts to detect radiological threats such as dirty bombs, radioactive contamination and smuggling of radioactive substances.
It is a wearable gamma neutron Radioisotope Identification Device (RIID) that the Kromek believes is one of the fastest and most accurate isotope identification devices in its class on the market.
“We’re pleased to have received this latest order for our D3S-ID nuclear radiation detector that provides security authorities with an early warning system for potential threats. Being awarded a repeat order for this product from this important customer is a great endorsement,” said Dr Arnab Basu, CEO of Kromek. “With the volatility of the current geopolitical environment, we are receiving heightened demand for our CBRN solutions, from new and existing customers, as governments become increasingly aware of the need to enhance their real-time threat monitoring. We believe that our solutions are best placed to provide them with this capability and, accordingly, we expect to receive further orders for our nuclear security products in the near term.”
The company’s D3S platform – comprising its range of D3S products – is also deployed as a networked solution to protect cities, buildings, or critical infrastructure.
