The Matrix MRDS system incorporates Thermo Scientific™ Natural Background Rejection (NBR) Technology, greatly reducing innocent alarms. NBR quickly distinguishes between natural radiation and artificial sources, using an intelligent self-calibrating process. NBR also greatly enhances sensitivity to real threats, even in the presence of high NORM levels (Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials).

The exceptionally complete line of Thermo Scientific™ radiation probes offers the ability to set up an impenetrable radiation barrier that can cover the spectrum of threatening artificial sources. A fixed or mobile detector network can be flexibly configured and reconfigured as the situation and detection objectives dictate.
