Berkeley Nucleonics offers isotope identification backpacks (backpack radiation detectors) for clandestine monitoring of gamma and neutron radiation. The RD-120 Series Backpacks can be customized to specific applications with a variety of detector and networking options. Low power drain allows for many hours of uninterrupted monitoring.

Additional user software may be deployed to allow “Command-and-Control” type ConOps. Alarming options include smart phone apps and stand off locations. For example, the wearer may use the backpack to zero in on the likely cause of the alarm, take one or more pictures of the area with a Smartphone, and send those pictures back to the Command Center to supplement the data transmitted automatically by the backpack. The RD-120 Backpack Radiation Detection system can also continuously transmit a GPS location along with corresponding radiation levels and energy spectrum.
