Radioactivity is not only invisible, there is no sense of the human being that can detect it. Still, for many security relevant situations we need to estimate its strength, to find the origin where it comes from and to determine what type of material actually emits the radiation.

RADEAGLE is a handheld radiation detection instrument that can exactly do that. It measures the dose rate, locates the source and identifies it. Reliable, robust and quick. Please find further key features by scrolling down on this page.

Detector technology

RADEAGLE´s detector is huge. That means it is very sensitive for radiation and all sorts of alarming will go very fast. It consists of a sodium iodide NaI(Tl) crystal which is sensitive to radiation. But thats not all. RADEAGLE can be equipped with other detector materials as well. We also offer a cerium bromide CeBr and a lanthanum bromide LaBr3(Ce) variant, which have better resolution.

Long runtime

8 hours nonstop operation in field. With extension battery pack even 16 hours of nonstop operation. A special battery holder allows you to add simple AA batteries, as you get them everywhere.

A user interface designed for the field


Dedicated functional modes assist the user in the measurement tasks. But RADEAGLE is more than a just a measurement device, it is a full blown spectroscopic laboratory right in your hands, featuring e.g. a detailed spectrum analysis screen, sensitivity adjustments for its sensors or an automatic ID with waterfall visualisation. Last, but not least, our user interface is really quick!

Wireless connectivity via removable dongle

There is a WiFi dongle positioned inside RADEAGLE´s handle. As long as you need wireless connectivity it is safely stored. If you enter areas of high security, e.g. military perimeters or other sensitive infrastructure, often it is not allowed to actually have wireless hardware on board. Therefore, you can simply detach the dongle from the handle and the hardware is de-facto physically removed. 

Web interface

Access to RADEAGLE data is very easy. After choosing your preferred way connection (WLAN, WLAN Hotspot, USB, ...), you can simply use your browser to access the web interface of the instrument. You can view and download spectra, generate reports, make comments, review ID results and many other things. 


Spectroscopic and radiologic data measured with RADEAGLE is tagged with geographical information, once the optional GPS module is installed. 

Machine Learning Nuclide Identification

The identification of nuclides is based on the spectrum. On the computer system of RADEAGLE, a powerful mathematical algorithm identifies radioactive sources based on this spectrum. It can also find the right composition, if multiple of these sources are present. Using combinations of different machine learning methods, semantic strategies and an expert knowledge database, the algorithm is a good example about artificial intelligence powering modern sensorial equipment. The algorithm is also fully adapted to the detector material either applying NaI specific optimisations or LaBr3 analysis with higher resolution. 


The instrument and especially its nuclide identification capabilities have been demonstrated in a wide range of in-field, laboratory and acceptance tests. A similar product, the RTR, using the same algorithm was certified to be compliant with the latest ANSI N42.34 standard by leading test organisations in the US. Its ability to detect and identify special nuclear material (SNM) was demonstrated by various independent tests at US National Laboratories and military facilities.


Special strength of the methods applied by RE is an extraordinary sensitivity and spectroscopic evaluations that separate SNM like Uranium, Plutonium or Neptunium against potential masking sources from medical, industrial or naturally occurring sources. The algorithm is available as standalone Replay-Tool for Windows 8/10/11 and for macOS. It allows to compare different algorithm versions, as well, as it helps organisations in their evaluation of the result quality. 


The instrument ships with a rich set of accessories: a charger with international plug adapter set, a calibration box, a car adapter and a battery pack for using consumer batteries.


A protective case is part of the RADEAGLE delivery. Specific designs can be chosen be the customer, including color variants for military or emergency applications. We also put in a lot of thoughts into how we could make this case even smarter. If you are interested to learn about its further functionalities, please ask a sales representative what kinds of additional tricks the case has!

Always calibrated in the era of machine learning control

RADEAGLE does not use any internal source. It does not contain any radiating material at all! Instead, we use the natural background radiation. There is a tiny little peak in the spectrum. This is a peak of potassium K-40 and it is nearly always there. This is one of many peaks RADEAGLE grabs to keep the calibration in place. And because our detector is so large, it sees the tiny peak very quickly.


The software also applies machine learning techniques for storing the complicated dependencies of the peak position and the temperature.  Each individual instrument is virtually "trained" at innoRIIDs European production facilities, not only with respect to temperature values but especially to different temperature change rates (shocks). 


If you require a unit with internal source, we can optionally equip the RADEAGLE with a small 137Cs source.
