Hand-Held Radioisotope Identifiers (RIIDs) - Ultra High Resolution HPGe Radioisotope Identification Device

ince 2004, ORTEC Detective Family Hand-Held Radioisotope Identifiers (HHRIIDS or RIIDS) have been used by organizations worldwide to interdict the illicit trafficking of nuclear materials. ORTEC RIIDS are used every day by:

  • Departments of Homeland Security
  • Departments of Defense
  • National Security Organizations
  • Bomb Disposal Teams
  • Emergency Response Teams
  • Customs and Border Control
  • Navy, Army and Air Forces
  • Emergency Management Teams
  • Civil Support Teams
  • Police Departments
  • Nuclear Safeguards Organizations
  • Nuclear Fuel Manufacturers
  • Nuclear Researchers
  • US NNSA second line of defense “Megaports” initiative
  • Transit Authorities

ORTEC’s Detective instruments base their superior performance on cryo-cooled ORTEC HPGe detectors coupled to unique identification algorithms developed from an original Technology Transfer License from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (TL-01754-03 and TL-01753-03). These, in turn, have been improved based on actual in-field experience.


Detection and Identification Features

  • Larger HPGe crystal, three times more efficient than the Micro-Detective-HX.
  • Improved Algorithm that increases detection probability.
  • Comprehensive library of over 175 radionuclides including new radiopharmaceuticals.
  • Better standoff detection and ID capability.

Operational Improvements

  • Rugged Instrument designed for harsh environments (IP65 compliant).
  • Weight Significantly Reduced (about half of Detective-EX-100T).
  • Battery life doubled and batteries are hot swappable.
  • New Li6/ZnS Neutron Detector Module (NDM), no 3He required.
  • Bigger display screen, easily readable in sunlight.

Quality Improvements

  • New Stirling cooler with more cooling capacity and improved mean time between failures.
  • Designed with extremely hard polycarbonate case, making it both lighter and more rugged.

Enhanced Connectivity Options

  • System includes built-in Ethernet connection (RJ45).
  • USB Connection to PC is plug and play.
  • USB memory stick stores >100,000 spectra.
  • Mobile phone Interconnectivity and control of instrument for iOS, Android, and Windows platforms.
  • WiFi and Bluetooth are standard with Detective X.
