Metor® Radiation Detection (option) expands the capabilities of the Rapiscan® Systems Metor family of walk-through metal detectors to include gamma and/or neutron detection; allowing the system to simultaneously screen for both metallic and radioactive threats. This expanded functionality enhances security at checkpoints and access-controlled entries at prisons, critical infrastructure, transportation hubs, or government facilities.


  • Radiation detection integrated with Metor walk-through metal detection portals

  • Simultaneously screens for metallic and radioactive threats

  • Distinguishes between medical, industrial, and special nuclear materials

  • Easily integrates into Metor systems currently deployed
