  • Battery powered
  • Compact, rugged and shockproof containing case


SNIPER-GN is a new compact and transportable instrument which integrates a Special Nuclear Material (SNM) isotope identifier with a high resolution hand-held gamma detector.

SNIPER-GN is easily deployable for rapid scanning of sensitive areas (restaurants, airports, subway stations, shopping malls, etc.) suitable for terroristic threats like dirty bomb and silent source.
Its compact design makes it also suitable for a series of sequential measurements in-field making it ideal for orphan source searching.

The system is easy transportable and ready to use with a battery pack included in the shockproof case. The SNIPER-GN can detect and identify neutron sources discriminating fissile material (e.g. 252Cf) alpha-n type sources (e.g. Am/Be) from Plutonium.
