Smiths aims to grow engineering expertise

Edgewood, Md (USA)

Smiths Detection Inc. has completed the successful transfer of Radseeker manufacturing from Danbury, CT, to its U.S. headquarters in Edgewood, MD. The move is part of the company’s strategy to integrate its core technologies and centrally grow its product and engineering expertise.

Radseeker, a next-generation, hand-held radiation detection and identification device, is designed to meet specific Department of Homeland Security (DHS) mission requirements. Used by Customs and Border Protection (CBP), emergency responders and law enforcement agents around the world, the self-calibrating Radseeker locates sources of radiological material and distinguishes nuclear threats from legitimately occurring radiation.

Terry Gibson, SDI’s President, said: “Manufacturing Radseeker in Maryland uderlines our commitment to remaining the world’s leading provider of advanced technologies to identify constantly evolving CBRNE threats and contraband. Our enhanced footprint in the Edgewood plant positions us to engage even more directly with key customers and to maintain their trust over the long term.”

SDI’s U.S. headquarters and home to its globally recognised training and service support centre for the Americas is also located in Edgewood, MD.

Smiths Detection Inc. designs and makes advanced systems and solutions to detect and identify threats including explosives, chemical agents, biohazards, nuclear, radiation, narcotics, weapons and contraband.
