Kromek, the County Durham-based developer of radiation and automated biological pathogen detectors, will be exhibiting at the annual Home Office Security & Policing+ Global Security Event at the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre, 14th-16th March 2023 on Stand D65 next to the Government Zone.
Making its public debut, the Static Node R, which was unveiled in January, will be the centrepiece of the company’s presence at the exhibition. The Static Node R was designed for unattended spectroscopic radiation monitoring via satellite communication. It combines the compatibility and sensitivity of the existing suite of Kromek detectors with satellite connectivity and an enhanced power pack to enable the device to be used for up to 7 days in a higher activity environment.
The connectivity provisions mean that a constant stream of data can be fed back to decision makers in real time to provide an accurate picture of radiation types and levels in the area where the system is positioned. With all components of the system housed in a ruggedised weatherproof case, the Static Node R can be deployed quickly and withstand the harshest environments.
Also on display will be the range of handheld radiation detectors including the D5 RIID and the D3S, which are in use around the world.
Kromek’s CBRN Business Manager, Craig Duff, said “We are proud to be demonstrating our latest static node detector, specifically designed for detecting illicit or accidental releases of radioactive materials, as well as the movement of radioactive material. The Static Node R shares the features of our existing range of detectors: a high degree of sensitivity and accuracy, the ability to transmit real-time data across a network and is designed to be intuitive for the user to operate. In an era of global instability and in a climate of heighted risk of an accidental or deliberate radiological event, we look forward showing the detector to our national and international security, law enforcement, border control and defence customers.”
