Radiation Detectors—Identifiers

AEL Category: 07. Detection

AEL Title: Identifier, Isotope, Radionuclide

AEL Number: 07RD-01-RIID

SAVER Project: Radiation Detectors — Identifiers

Radiation Isotope Identifier Devices (RIIDs) are used to perform spectroscopic analysis to distinguish between different radioactive isotopes. Responders use field-deployable systems to distinguish between legitimate radiation sources and illegal ones.

Please contact NUSTL@hq.dhs.gov regarding access to the following additional documents: Test and Evaluation Results, Focus Group Report, and Assessment Report on Radioisotope Identifier Devices.

Find this project in the FEMA Authorized Equipment List and InterAgency Board Interactive Standardized Equipment List.
