Handheld Radiation Detector and Identifier

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory researchers demonstrate the GammaTracker, a handheld radiation detector and identifier. GammaTracker is a rugged, portable device that points the user in the direction of the mystery source being detected. Designed for security personnel, the handheld device correctly distinguishes different radioactive elements and where the radiation is coming from - ideal for when a suspect is hiding in a crowd.
