The RPM is a passive checkpoint which can detect potentially dangerous radiation emitting material which passes through its detection zone. The portal is capable of scanning trucks, vehicles, containers, packages and people.

Shan Hood, President of Smiths Detection Inc., said: “Smiths Detection’s extensive experience with radiation detection and checkpoint solutions, as well as our research & development investment in data solutions, makes cutting-edge screening technology a reality. Solutions, like the RPM and our ability to deliver 24/7/365 service sets Smiths Detection’s solutions apart for their efficiency and effectiveness. We are ready to help DHS and the CWMD office protect the United States for years to come.”

SDI is partnered with Radiation Solutions, Inc. (RSI) and Silverside Detectors Inc. to utilize gamma and neutron detection technology respectively. Jens Hovgaard, President, RSI, said,” We are thrilled to be moving into this phase of the program and look forward to working closely with Smiths Detection, CBP, and CWMD to support and enhance the RPM replacement program.” “Silverside is committed to providing best-in-class neutron detection for protecting the United States, and commends Smiths Detection and RSI for their commitment to technical and mission excellence,” said Andrew Inglis, CEO & Founder, Silverside Detectors Inc.

The IDIQ contract with CWMD has a $291m ceiling, allows for multiple orders of SDI products and services under a single contract, and provides flexibility for the customer in follow-on order decisions.
