SAVER Market Survey Report: Personal Radiation Detectors (PRDs) and Spectroscopic PRDs [July 2017] [open pdf - 972KB]
"Personal radiation detectors (PRDs) are small electronic devices that alert the wearer to the presence of radiation for the purpose of intercepting illicit radioactive materials. Some PRDs, known as spectroscopic personal radiation detectors (SPRDs), also measure the energy spectrum of the radiation to identify the radionuclide. To provide emergency responders with information on PRDs and SPRDs, the System Assessment and Validation for Emergency Responders (SAVER) Program conducted a market survey.This market survey report is based on information gathered between June and December 2016 from manufacturers, vendors, Internet research, industry publications, and a government-issued Request for Information (RFI) that was posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website."
