Princeton Gamma Tech Instruments Collaborates with Boeing for Underwater Isotope Discrimination

Princeton Gamma Tech Instruments, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Princeton Security Technologies located in New Jersey has announced that the company has successfully completed the Radiation Sensor Testing on the Being Echo Ranger.

Nuclear radiation detection tools developed by Princeton Gamma Tech were included in a series of tests performed recently on the Boeing Echo Ranger, an autonomous underwater vehicle. The testing was performed in the Pacific Ocean, off the Santa Catalina Island.

A supplier of portable radioisotope identifiers, gamma-ray and x-ray detectors, spectroscopy systems and portable chemical analyzers, Princeton Gamma Tech Instruments collaborated with Boeing to conduct ultra-low level isotope-based spectroscopic monitoring. The various applications of the nuclear radiation detection and isotope identification system include border security, underwater vessel interdiction and uranium exploration. The Boeing Echo Ranger, built by Boeing, is a large displacement unmanned underwater vehicle originally developed for capturing sonar images of the seabed for oil & gas industries.

The patented technology developed by Princeton Gamma Tech Instruments is capable of background subtraction to ascertain isotope category and specific dose rates.

The Program Development Manager of Boeing Information Solutions, Jameson Garrett explained that the autonomous underwater vehicle service provider has decided to combine the on-board processing capability offered by Princeton Gamma Tech with Boeing’s advance autonomous behavior to develop and perform an advanced undersea radiological search capability.

Princeton Security Technologies is a developer of radiation area monitors, high purity germanium detector technology and radiation isotope identifiers required by US Homeland Security, nuclear power plants, research laboratories and nuclear safety agencies worldwide.
