Plutonium HUNTER is a new type of portable Special Nuclear Material (SNM) isotope identifier based on the simultaneous detection of gamma rays and neutrons.
The whole apparatus is easy transportable and ready to use in its shockproof case.
Plutonium HUNTER can detect and identify neutron sources discriminating fissile material (e.g. 252Cf) alpha-n type sources (e.g. Am/Be) from Plutonium.
It also allows identifying usual gamma ray emitters (e.g. 137Cs and 60Co) or NORM materials as in the commercially available systems.
FIELD OF APPLICATION
- Detection of Special Nuclear Material (SNM)
- Identification of neutron sources
- Discrimination of fissile materials
