Portable Non-destructive Chemical Munitions and Weapons Identification System

Oak Ridge, TN – The ORTEC Products Group of AMETEK Advanced Measurement Technology announces the release of the PINS3-CW (Portable Isotopic Neutron Spectroscopy 3rd generation) Portable Chemical Identification System.

The PINS3-CW safely and quickly detects and identifies hazardous chemicals inside munitions or chemical storage containers by conducting nondestructive gamma analysis. The system uses ORTEC’s portable Trans-Spec-N high-purity germanium spectrometer combined with a portable neutron detector and a unique software algorithm developed in partnership with Idaho National Laboratory.

“The PINS3-CW is a significant evolution in our non-destructive analysis systems. The system integrates our new mechanically cooled Trans-Spec-N portable spectrometer with a small neutron generator to support user requirements to identify unknown threats at the location of the container or source.” says Frank Vorwald, ORTEC business unit manager. “The system is completely portable for missions that require an easy to use solution without the need for liquid nitrogen or shielded radioactive sources.”

The entire PINS3-CW system fits into a hardened wheeled transport case for easy handling and shipping to any location by a single user. The system is environmentally hardened for field operations and is designed for remote operation to increase stand-off distance and user safety.
