Since its launch in 2020, the relationship that Military Personnel across the world have built with the Kromek D5 RIID has continues to go from strength to strength. Throughout the development stage, the team worked closely with the Defence Threat Reduction Agency of the US Department of Defence, enabling us to ensure the RIID was fit for purpose.
For any military operation, the ultimate goal is to ensure not only the safety of the individual, but the safety and livelihood of the people and country they serve. We designed the D5 RIID with this in mind. We wanted to ensure that any individual from any regiment of the armed forces was able to use the device, but also decipher the information that it provided, allowing for decisive and instant action to be taken. The device is designed to be used on extended adjudication missions. The detector resolution and advanced algorithm enables rapid identification of potential radioactive threats. This allows accurate in-field adjudication of special Nuclear Materials (SNM), even when heavily masked during tactical response missions, for those currently using the D5 RIID, the capability of the device to be networked to lone systems solely used by that individual force, or to be linked to the larger SIGMA network, enabling cooperative working between multiple forces, government bodies and industries.
As missions become longer, more complex and reach bigger, more dangerous areas, the D5 has been designed to withstand these harsh and challenging environments. with its operational range of -20°C to +50°C, it functions regardless of humidity, temperature shock, being dropped or fully submerged in water, ensuring any soldier is solely concentrated on the mission at hand.
