Key product features in a nutshell
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.

Spectroscopic and radiologic data measured with RADEAGLE is tagged with geographical information, once the optional GPS module is installed.
The identification of nuclides is based on the spectrum. On the computer system of 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.
RADEAGLE 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 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.
