RADEAGLET

RADEAGLET is designed for high performance nuclide identification in a small, lightweight housing. It is the lightest radio-isotope identification device (RIID) on the market.  

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.

Highly-sensitive detectors

RADEAGLET´s detector is sensitive and small. It is read out with a smart signal processing technique that allows for tremendous throughput and optimal resolution. 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 lanthanum bromide LaBr3(Ce) variant, which provides even better resolution.

Up to 16 hours operation in the field

RADEAGLET features 8 hours nonstop operation, adding up to 16 hours of nonstop operation when using the extension package. Operation time is of great importance in the field. Therefore, all components of the RADEAGLET were designed for low energy consumption and efficient processing, including Automatic display dimming and energy-saving features in its computer system. 

 
High-Quality Bonded Display
Like in modern smartphones, the RADEAGLET display is bonded with the glass cover. The three-button keyboard smoothly integrates into the unit. Precision and accuracy where elementary design principles for the instrument. Additionally, it is easy to decontaminate.
 
 
Intuitive User Interface

The instrument has different functional modes for the user. These include: a) a Dose Rate Mode to measure the dose and count rate, b) a Detect Mode, that helps to find and locate sources, c) an Easy-ID Mode to quickly identify the source of radiation. 

 

Furthermore, RADEAGLET features several advanced measurement functions, including the same comprehensive spectroscopic laboratory as RADEAGLE,  e.g. with a detailed spectrum analysis screen, sensitivity adjustments for its sensors or an automatic ID with waterfall visualisation.

Wireless connectivity via removable hardware dongle

There is a WiFi dongle positioned behind RADEAGLET´s front cover. 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. 

 

 

USB Data Transfer, USB Network and SD Card

The USB port can be used for several things. You can attach a USB stick for copying your data. The RADEAGLET software has features for smart extraction of your data. It keeps you updated on the consumed memory and offers different ways of clearing the data, e.g. removing all spectra older than a month. 

 

Second, you can connect to any wired network with the USB port. Just plugin a USB-Ethernet cable and you are good to go.

 

You can also get collected data via the SD card. It can be removed and used in any common, available PC.


 
GPS and GLONASS

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

Web Interface

Access to RADEAGLET 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. 


Powerful algorithm for nuclide identification

The identification of nuclides is based on the spectrum. On the computer system of RADEAGLE & RADEAGLET runs a powerful mathematical algorithm that identifies radioactive sources based on this spectrum. It can also find the right composition, if multiple of these sources are there simultaneously.

 

Describing the engine behind it would be lengthy. If you are affine to keywords: a multi-agent system with an armada of over 100 functional agents, a stochastic deconvolution and a self-learning Kalman filter are vital components in its realization. Sometimes, we call it a neuro-spectroscopic brain.

 
Accessories
The instrument ships with a rich set of accessories: a USB charger with international plug adapter set together with a high-quality USB cable, a car adapter for charging RADEAGLET from your car connector, a calibration box and a USB extension battery.
 

Always calibrated in the era of machine learning

RADEAGLET does not use any internal source. It does not contain any radiating material at all! Instead, we use the natural background radiation. See the tiny little peak in the spectrum? This is a peak of 40K. It is nearly always there. This is one of many peaks RADEAGLET 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 RADEAGLET with a small 137Cs source.
