GAO Tek: Providing Radiation Meters for Defense Applications

The article on defense radiation meters talks about the accurate monitoring and detection of radiation levels to ensure the safety of personnel, comply with regulations, and protect national security. With over 30 years of innovation and expertise, GAO Tek has established itself as a trusted provider of radiation meters for various industries, including defense. Their radiation meters are used in border security, customs, personal protective equipment testing, and radiation source identification.

           The multiple purposes of GAO Tek’s radiation meters serve within the defense industry were highlighted as shown below:

  • GAO’s radiation meters help maintain personnel safety and monitor radiation levels in areas where nuclear materials or radioactive sources are handled. They detect and measure radiation exposure, ensuring adherence to safety protocols and minimizing potential hazards.
  • These meters play a crucial role in verifying compliance with arms control agreements and treaties. They monitor and measure radiation levels at nuclear facilities, ensuring countries uphold non-proliferation commitments.
  • GAO radiation meters contribute to monitoring the environment for radioactive contamination. In the event of a nuclear accident or incident, these meters assess contamination levels, guide cleanup efforts, and safeguard public health and safety.
  • Employed to scan cargo, vehicles, and luggage at ports, borders, and airports, GAO’s radiation meters detect the presence of radioactive materials associated with illicit nuclear activities or smuggling attempts.
  • GAO Tek radiation meters are utilized to test and calibrate personal protective equipment (PPE), ensuring military personnel are adequately shielded from radiation exposure in high-risk environments.
  • Equipped with spectroscopic capabilities, GAO’s radiation meters can identify and analyze different types of radiation sources. This capability enables the determination of the nature of radiation threats, differentiating between harmless and potentially dangerous materials.
