Kromek is pleased to announce that its award-winning D3S networked radiation detector has been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Safety and Security’ category of the Engineer: 2017 Collaborate to Innovate Awards.

The Awards ceremony will be held at the Lloyds Bank Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre, Coventry, on December 7 this year and will celebrate the very best in UK collaborations and innovations in engineering.

Kromek’s D3S is a smartphone-sized handheld, wireless radiation detector, which can be carried by police officers and community first responders as they travel. The wireless detectors can coordinate their readings to produce a map of radiation levels in a city and in turn improve the ability of security services to counter the threat of nuclear terrorism involving a ‘dirty bomb’.

Kromek CEO, Arnab Basu said: “We’re delighted to be a finalist in these awards with further recognition from within our peer group of our innovative solution, the D3S network, to combat modern security threats”.

Developed under the SIGMA programme, the detector came to fruition through a collaboration with the U.S. Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), an agency of the US Department of Defense, Invincea and PSI (Physical Sciences Inc).
