Is There Contraband Detection Equipment That Detects Radiation?

Radioactivity or radioactive decay is harmful to living things as it damages the cells, tissues, and organs. It can even kill them. Even a minimal exposure to radiation can cause you severe headaches, fatigue, vomiting, and fever.

Radioactive leaks like hidden dirty bombs should be detected before unsuspecting human beings and animals would be harmed by them. Fortunately, there is contraband detection equipment that can detect radiation like the Buster K910G Density Meter from Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO).

The K910G still has the features of the K910B – the low-intensity gamma radiation and the scintillation detector. This very technology has made the Buster as effective for many years in scanning every type of material that range from wood, metal and reinforced plastic, to even organic material such as dirt and liquids. The contraband may be hidden in parts of the car, of the container van, furniture, false walls, undersides of vehicles – nothing can escape from the power of the Buster.

Unlike other contraband detectors that use other technology like microwave, millimeter wave, radio wave and ultraviolet wave, the Buster K910G recognizes almost every type of hidden contraband that includes illegal drugs, narcotics, currency, any type of weapons, and even explosives.

Speaking of explosives, the Buster can detect the radioactive leaks and detonations like dirty bombs. Did you know that the Buster has the RAD-Aware early radiation warning alarm – the first density meter/contraband detector to have this feature? It enables detectors (first responders) to establish safety boundaries in the event of a dirty-bomb detonation or any other radioactive leak.

Other density meters could only do a “survey” whether radiation is present or not. The Buster, on the other hand, positively detects a dangerous amount of radiation or a radioactive source, it will send a warning to the user either by an audio alarm or visual readouts.

Local and state law enforcement agencies may need assistance to acquire the Buster K910G or the CT-40 Team Inspection Kit through grants provided by the Office of National Drug Control Policy and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Visit CSECO’s “Grants” page (http://cseco.com/Grants) for more information.

The Buster K910G density meter from CSECO is the most powerful and versatile contraband detection equipment on the market today. Not only it can detect multiple types of hidden contraband, it can also detect threatening levels of radiation or radioactive source.

CSECO Contraband Detection Tools Assist Most Often

When law enforcement agents are looking for equipment that will help them the most in their day-to-day duties, they may not look further because Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) is there to provide top-of-the-line contraband detection tools.

CSECO’s equipment has effectively reduced the time and effort of inspecting items or areas suspected of hiding narcotics, illegal drugs and other contraband. At the same time, they have helped in improving the chances of locating and seizing them. Additional training to the purchasers of CSECO’s products will definitely increase their chances of success of locating and seizing hidden contraband in their respective inspections.

The company’s founder, Patrick J. Harris, took advantage of the latest technology to design, develop and launch contraband detection equipment. These tools promised faster and more accurate inspection, location and seizure of narcotics, illegal drugs and other hidden contraband.

Here are CSECO’s popular tools for every law enforcement agent’s contraband detection needs:

1. Buster Density Meter

The Buster Density Meter is CSECO’s first contraband detection equipment and the first density meter in the world for law enforcement purposes. Its state-of-the-art technology enables it to scan on many different types of materials (wood, metal, reinforced plastic, concrete and organic matter like dirt and liquids). Inspectors can use it to scan on several types of vehicles (and its parts which range from dashboards to gas tanks to seats), spaces, furniture, container vans, even 6-inches below the soil.

The Buster helps in locating and seizing narcotics, drugs (illegal or prescribed), currency, jewelry, alcohol, weapons, and explosives.

The latest version of the Buster, the Buster K910G, is now made even safer with its significantly reduced radioactive and lead-based components (which the Buster K910B had).

Despite a multitude of imitations, a majority law enforcement agents across the country still recognize the Buster as the “gold standard’ in contraband detection. What’s more, agents from no less than the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) were part of the Buster’s creation and development of the Buster. So you’ll get nothing from the Buster but durability, accuracy, and safety — the best performance possible — that you cannot get from rival density meters.

2. Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System

The Buster does its own proven function in locating hidden contraband. However, drug interdiction agents need to confirm the presence of a contraband, particularly in inaccessible areas like gas tanks, bumpers, smaller compartments, or cracks on the surface. The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System is an answer to this.

It is a visual inspection device that is touted to perform much better than the leading fiberscopes on the market.

The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope has a 5-inch color LCD display — big enough for the user to peek into suspected areas clearly while maintaining visibility of his immediate surroundings. This leads to reduced eye strain which is otherwise caused by peering into an eyepiece of the fiberscope. The large monitor also features a push-button dimming and digital zoom.

The device has a shaft with a protective tungsten coating and a potent built-in LED light, which allows the inspector to use it during the evening on in darker areas.

It has a certification by the Underwriters Laboratory (UL), the world’s leading authority on product safety. This puts the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope above all other visual inspection tools. This very certification means that the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope can be used anywhere, even in hazardous areas (like gas tanks). Despite that, using it in such potentially dangerous areas doesn’t cause the device itself to go out of control, or cause any damage to the items being inspected. It doesn’t harm or cause any shock to the user either when the device is exposed to such areas, making the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope the safest visual inspection tool on the market.

3. CT-40 Contraband Team Kit

The CT-40 Contraband Detection Kit contains all the tools that law enforcement agents need: the Buster Density Meter and the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope, PN – Series Inspection Kit, Leica Laser Range Meter, and PM – 10 Extension Mirror with High-Intensity Flashlight and a durable carrying case with wheels.

CSECO has kept its pledge to bring contraband detection equipment that will help the law enforcement in eradicating the illegal drugs trade, smuggling, corruption, and terrorism.
