The challenge

Following 9/11, Homeland Security became front page news - opening the market to new radiation detection systems. Radiation Watch approached Cambridge Design Partnership to help them develop and commercialise their isotopic dosimeter technology.

The solution

As well as carrying out the research and engineering, Cambridge Design Partnership developed a business case to encourage distributors to adopt and sell a revolutionary technology. We developed a working prototype in just 4 months and develop production test and calibration systems with giga-becquerel sources to meet the IAEA requirements. A further product version was then developed to broaden the market offer.

Benefit to client

We created for the client the first spectrographic IPD, that was lightweight, rugged and wearable, with Bluetooth Interface.

Radiation Watch now have a unique technology linked to a service business in calibrating devices which offers distributors the opportunity to generate long term income.
