Nucsafe’s ARDIMS is built to search for the presence of NORM and manmade radioactive materials. The system incorporates state of the art passive scanning technology to detect changes in radiation levels emitted by gamma and/or neutron radionuclides found on persons and in buildings, objects, vehicles, or containers.

The ARDIMS meets and exceeds the strict requirements that radiation search teams demand. The ARDIMS detection system is highly accurate, and provides gamma and neutron detection capabilities for multiple mission profiles.

The ARDIMS is capable of detecting and identifying a wide range of radioactive material, including special nuclear materials such as plutonium and highly enriched uranium. Additionally, the ARDIMS identifies a wide variety of more common radionuclides, including but not limited to: 40K, 60Co, 57Co, 134Cs, 137Cs, 192Ir, 226Ra, 241Am, 232Th, 131I and 201Tl.

Depending on user requirements and configuration, the system is designed to distinguish between special nuclear material (SNM), naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM), radiation dispersal devices (RDDs), medical isotopes, reactor fallout, and industrial isotopes in a way that minimizes operator interaction with the system controls and indicators. This capability allows for a quicker reaction to real threats.
