Maritime radiation detection equipment can be deployed on vessels to detect illicit radioactive material. This technology is useful for searching ports and marinas, scanning traffic at ferry terminals, scanning vessels during surveillance and interdiction operations, and monitoring marine border crossings. Unique considerations when using radiation detectors in a marine environment include varying levels of background radiation, intermittent power, and the need to protect against electromagnetic interference, vibration, water, and corrosion.
