Kromek will be exhibiting at this event with our stand manned by our CBRNE experts and examples of our D3S wearable radiation detector product range.
About the JPEO General Membership Meeting and CWMD Industry Outreach Event
The Medical CBRN Defense Consortium and the Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Consortium, in conjunction with the JPEO-CBRND and DHS CWMD Office, is a consortia meeting and industry outreach event. This event will include multiple opportunities for Government, industry, and academia to interact and exchange information regarding upcoming business opportunities. This event will focus on medical and non-medical CBRNE related requirements of the CBRN enterprise including the JPEO-CBRND, DHS CWMD Office, DTRA, and others.
Assistant Secretary McDonnell and other speakers will update participants on CWMD’s progress towards meeting its mission and expand on the Office’s current areas of emphasis. The event will include plenary sessions, user panel, and an expanded exhibit area (which is where you will find us). This event will include sessions with government, industry, academia, and operational users who have an interest in countering chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear threats in the new CWMD mission space.
The D3S gamma neutron detector was built to help protect America from radiological attack
They can act as standalone radiation detectors in either PRD, SPRD and RIID mode. Or they can become part of the SIGMA Network and join a host of other networked detectors to provide a complete radiation detection net over an area.
The power of the network
The central idea of total networked radiological protection is that the best way to protect a location from a radiological attack (for example a radiological dispersal device also know as a dirty bomb) or to protect against the smuggling of nuclear material is to have an always-on, ubiquitous radiation detection and alerts system in place. This networked radiological protection provides a source of information on the background NORM radiation levels in the location and allows for suspect source to quickly identified and tracked wherever they arise.
Imagine if all the traffic cameras in a city broadcast to separate screens each in a different room, no one could see all the screens in one place. This is the current state of radiation protection, lots of different types of detectors reporting their findings locally and no-one looking at the bigger picture.

The power of one device that can switch between functions
Unlike existing personal radiation devices the D3S can switch between a simple PRD mode (dose and alarm only) to an SPRD mode (dose, alarm, isotope identification) to a RIID mode (dose, alarm, isotope identification, confirmation mode and reachback reporting). It can also be turned into a fully networked device with a simple software update.
