Operating reliably, instantly and constantly, but not to the naked eye
With its discreet appearance and small size, the D3M is optimal for wearability or handheld use by a security guard, unknown to terrorists or the public. Operating for 24 hours or 36 with a replaceable battery pack, the D3M constantly monitors the presence of radioactive material for the entirety of a security guard’s shift.
Furthermore, operators are only disrupted from their daily duties when a real radioactive threat is detected. With a false alarm rate 6 times lower than ANSI standards, no time or effort is likely to bewasted.
However, security will be alerted instantly when in the presence of a radioactive source. This is due to the D3M’s high sensitivity and large detector volume which allow it to detect radiological threats much faster than standard PRDs.
