Detect and locate radiation threats in real time
Localize, identify, and measure radioactivity in any scenario with radiation monitoring and surveillance instruments that enable military personnel to respond quick and appropriately. Integrated solutions involving portable radiation detection, dosimetry and personal radiation monitoring, radiation contamination and environmental monitoring, and radiation detection portals and monitors help protect military personnel, critical infrastructure, and surrounding areas.

Quickly distinguish between naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) and radiation from man-made sources such as nuclear weapons, improvised nuclear devices (INDs), or radiological dispersal devices (RDDs). Thermo Fisher Scientific offers a variety of portable radiation detection devices and instruments for continuous monitoring of radiation exposure of military personnel and immediate alert to a variety of radiation types.
Safeguard military and civil defense outfits and other industries that work with sources of radiation or need to address the problems of orphaned, unknown, and hidden radioactive threats. Thermo Scientific contamination monitors are designed to withstand the demanding environment in which first responders, security forces and military operate.
Prevent the spread of contamination on any surface that could be exposed to radioactive material. We offer a wide variety of portable alpha, beta, and gamma probes for contamination surveys on large and small objects including table tops, floors, equipment, and personal items.
Keep the environment and surrounding communities safe from nuclear radiation leaks with Thermo Scientific continuous environment radiation monitoring and assessment equipment. Our environmental monitors support and sustain nuclear safety by measuring radioactive material or noble gases released by nuclear power plants, and by detecting airborne alpha- and beta-emitting particulates in work areas, stacks, and ducts.
Achieve the best radiation contamination detection limits possible with Thermo Scientific radiation contamination measurement systems. To prevent the spread of radioactive contamination beyond the controlled area and keep outside areas secure, we offer a range of personnel contamination monitors to survey the body, hands and feet, small and large articles, and laundry.
Next-generation detectors are making it possible for security professionals to consider installing smaller, faster and more reliable detection and response systems where cost and logistical constraints may have previously discouraged their implementation.
