Like other FLIR radiation instruments, the R300 (nanoRaider) enables the most advanced communications features available in any class of radiation detector. With One Touch Reachback, users can immediately provide full spectroscopic data as well as detailed device information, time, and gPS location to as many people as necessary with the push of a button.
No longer do users have to physically connect their device to a computer, install secondary software, or use external email to provide alarm notifications. Through a simple Bluetooth® connection, such notifications are all but automatic. This unique capability provides added security by retaining all detection and identification data on the instrument itself and not on a local computer.
Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CZT) detectors are known for better resolution in a smaller detector without the need for temperature stabilization. Through ongoing research and development, FLIR has optimized this material for radiation detection and accurate source identification. In the nanoRaider, this ability virtually eliminates the inconvenience and expense associated with false alarms and false positives, not to mention the time involved in obtaining secondary inspections necessary to clear an alarm. In addition, the CZT material is naturally more rugged than typical scintillation detectors and is able to survive the general abuse typical of field deployments.
Unlike other companies, FLIR takes the approach that one size doesn’t fit all. We understand how important it is to have an instrument that meets the specific requirements of the mission at hand. To that end, the nanoRaider provides the same high quality results as much larger instruments, but with an inconspicuous, compact design.
The entire family of FLIR radiation instruments has been developed to address the specific sensitivity, resolution, size, and weight requirements of a variety of applications. Furthermore, each of these instruments, including the nanoRaider, employs the same simple to use and understand interface, which in turn reduces the training burden. With more than 14,000 radiation instruments deployed worldwide, the well-known and trusted FLIR user interface has become industry standard.
