Advantage

Benefit

High Efficiency

Shorter counting times, higher sensitivity than low pressure He-3 tubes.

More throughput for high volume. Required capability in some applications.

Low background

Shorter counting times

More throughput for high volume. Required capability in some applications.

Discriminates n to gamma

Neutrons uniquely identify Pu and other fissile transuranics.

Low false alarm rate. Lower gamma ray into neutron channel than other solid state neutron detectors.

Large area detectors available

Higher sensitivity at distances and more uniform response for large objects.

Fast measurements at required distances to source.

Flexible detector shape

Conforms to object being counted

Unique for special shapes including cylinders (drums and containers) and people.

Fast response

150ns processing time is 50 times faster than He-3 tubes. Coincidence resolving times to 80ns.

Passive and active coincidence for larger masses. Reduces accidental coincidence rates.

Lightweight

Concealable and portable

Safeguards and field agent monitoring instruments.

Low-power

Portable systems use less than 7W power.

In-situ measurement applications powered for 8 hours per battery.
