Arktis Radiation Detectors Ltd

From the beginning, Arktis Radiation Detectors Ltd has taken a fresh look and approach to the very important business of detecting radiological and nuclear materials that pose a threat to our safety and security. Always with performance efficacy at the forefront, Arktis’ view of innovation includes optimizing operational performance, lowering cost barriers to facilitate adoption, and including the end user from start to finish.

Arktis was incorporated in Zurich, Switzerland in 2007. The founding team of Rico Chandra, Giovanna Davatz and Mario Voegeli, formed the company in the wake of a number of major events that highlighted the need to counter the emerging nuclear threat to world security. The team leveraged their extensive understanding of nuclear physics to the production of next generation radiation detection systems. The vision was to produce systems that have enhanced performance, can better detect shielded hazardous materials and that significantly improve security across the globe.

Since its inception, Arktis has followed a strategic growth path and employs highly skilled scientists and engineers who have developed proprietary radiation detection technologies based on research originally undertaken at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) on behalf of ETH Zurich, a leading European technical university. A key feature of the innovative detection methods developed by Arktis is that it provides customers with a unique potential to discover shielded nuclear materials such as Plutonium.

These new technologies and products provide a step change in capability over systems currently in use. A range of next generation systems is being offered, which can be used across a wide variety of applications and markets. Arktis is now bringing these innovative radiation detection systems to customers and government agencies around the world.
