Berkeley Nucleonics Introduces Advanced Spectroscopic Portals (ASP) to Monitor, Detect and Identify Rad/Nuke Materials

Share Article

The ARAM system, a commercially available portal monitoring system that detects and identifies nuclear materials, can be configured for vehicles, luggage, pedestrians or many other screening applications.

Berkeley Nucleonics ( introduces the first commercially available advanced spectroscopic portal monitor (ASP) used to detect and identify rad/nuke materials. This 'first-to-market' system, with successful deployments in locations along the United States border, allow users the convenience of identification of radioactive sources of suspect materials, vehicles or people as they pass by the sensors.

Sensors can be hidden for clandestine monitoring applications, and US Federal Govt. tests have proven the design can identify target radiation at speeds of up to 30 MPH.

The system folds into several reachback programs to ensure that end users are supported by local and federal agencies. The US Department of Homeland Security is in the process of establishing a regional reachback program to provide increased local support for users of systems such as this.

Berkeley Nucleonics, together with its parters, is offering the products, the installation at your facility, the training and protocol development, the support and maintenance, and a private reachback option. Berkeley Nucleonics, having spun off of the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory in 1963, has spent the past 43 years in design, manufacturing and application support of nuclear electronics. Berkeley Nucleonics (BNC Corp, San Rafael CA) has a distribution network reaching over 50 countries and provides a regional, accredited training seminar on isotope identification.
