At Border Security Expo (BSE) in San Antonio this week Symetrica will continue its efforts to advance radiation detection technology by facilitating dialogue among front line officers, experts, and industry to promote more effective and sustainable border security solutions.
The risk that nuclear or other radioactive materials could be used in criminal or intentional unauthorised acts remains a matter of concern and continues to be regarded as a threat to international security. Border security capabilities to detect and respond to nuclear or other radioactive materials require continuous improvement to effectively deal with this evolving threat.
Symetrica’s unique Discovery Technology architecture and range of 3He-free neutron detectors set new performance standards with best-in-class accuracy, low lifecycle costs, and continuous stabilisation and auto-calibration, providing real-time system health monitoring and eliminating scheduled maintenance. Symetrica provides cost-effective solutions that make countries, populations, and events safer while minimising the impact on the flow of commerce, people, and traffic.
Symetrica is a global leader in the design, manufacture, and algorithm development of radiation detection and identification systems, with a current range that includes portal, mobile, hands-free, and hand-held systems. Originally incorporated in the United Kingdom in 2002 as a start-up from the University of Southampton’s Department of Physics and Astronomy, the company has headquarters in England but has research, engineering, sales, and operations functions in Maynard, MA.
