  • Covert Radiation Inspection
  • Gamma and Neutron Radiation Detection
  • High Sensitivity
  • Lightweight and Easy to Use

The Rapiscan MP100 Backpack Radiation Detection system is a lightweight, high performance, easy to use radiation monitor housed in a compact commercial backpack. All of the features required for radiation detection are integrated in the MP100. It can be used as a standalone device and connected wirelessly to a Rapiscan oversight system for remote data collection and display. The MP100 is ideal for performing covert radiation inspection to find radiological and nuclear materials, for supporting security operations and for performing radiation surveys.

Gamma and Optional Neutron Radiation Detection
The MP100 uses commercial-off-the-shelf, field-proven electronics and detection technology. The PVT plastic scintillator gamma radiation detectors are designed to deliver enhanced directional sensitivity. Optional neutron detection capability employs B10 neutron detectors, which replace scarce and expensive He3 detectors. Both gamma and neutron radiation detection performance meet the requirements of ANSI N42.53.

Easy to Use Operation
Using the MP100 is as easy as walking. The Rapiscan Radviewer™ Android App displays the current position and direction toward the radiation source. A radiation alarm is signaled audibly via a headphone jack on the backpack or visually via Radviewer™. The onboard battery enables 16 hours of continuous operation in a wide range of environments. The MP100 can also be used as a static area monitor.

Proven Radiation Inspection Technology
The MP100 is manufactured by Rapiscan’s Radiation Detection Products division, which has supplied thousands of radiation monitors that are deployed at border crossings, seaports, airports and facilities around the world. The MP100 applies proven Rapiscan design principles and technology to a practical, high performance man-portable radiation detection solution.
