Core competencies

Arktis Radiation Detectors Ltd has developed a platform technology for detecting ionizing radiation
using compressed noble-gas. The technologys unique capabilities for direct fast neutron detection and
gamma radiation detection enable several novel applications.

Our platform technology enables a number of unique solutions in several markets, based on three
basic capabilities:

Sensitivity to fast neutrons:
Fast neutrons are difficult to shield and a tell-tale sign of weapons usable materials. Arktis fast
neutron detection technology has the potential to detect threats that escape conventional detection.

Suppression of background:
While a technologys sensitivity is important, its susceptibility to background noise is equally
important. Rather than background subtraction, Arktis technology allows background suppression.

Scalability:
Our technology is fully scalable both from a physics and a cost point of view. The Arktis platform
technology does not depend on exotic detector materials.

The Arktis platform technology uses compressed noble gas as a medium for gamma and neutron
radiation detection. Noble gases are an abundantly available, low-cost, and safe ressource. They
present an excellent alternative to He-3, BF3, Li-6.

Arktis designs and manufactures detectors using Xenon, Argon, and natural Helium as a detector
medium. All of these materials allow very powerful discrimination between gamma and neutron
radiation, nevertheless, they have different unique properties.
