Arktis Radiations Detectors have developed a new Flat Panel Gamma (FPG) detector. The slim form factor of Arktis’ new detector means that gamma detectors can now be placed in areas where it was previously unfeasible or untenable for cost reasons. FPGs can be fitted in security equipment that allows for the detection of radioactive sources, and more inconspicuous areas such as ‘Sensing Walls’, where detectors are concealed behind walls or billboards.
This type of detector allows operators to distinguish dangerous radioactive isotopes from benign ones. Integration into other systems is enhanced by having signal processing on board the detector.
