PEO Radiation Technology our distributor for the Benelux countries is holding a radiation detecting drone demo day.
You will be able to see the drones in action, get up close and watch them being operated.
A range of other Kromek radiation detectors will also be available for testing including our range of D3S wearable gamma neutron detectors.

What to see our drone in action now?
See more about our drone equipment on these pages of our website:
- UAV drones for radiation mapping.
- UGV drone rover for radiation mapping in hard to reach places.
- Kromek drones (as well as some smaller lower cost models) have been used recently to map areas around Chernobyl.
- The Kromek D3S has also been used on drones providing a radiation count for both gamma and neutron radiation in one device.
Where did these drones come from?
The initial idea for aerial mapping of radioactive sites came after the radiation leaks at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan following the magnitude 9.0 earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan on 11 March 2011. A team at Bristol University Interface Analysis Centre saw that the initial radioactive measurements of the area around the disaster were taken by hand, which put the people doing the work in harm’s way.
