Los Angeles, CA. January 23, 2019 - US Nuclear Corp. (OTCBB: UCLE) is proud to announce that it has sold a fleet of DroneRAD systems to the Saudi Arabia Civil Defense. This order brings US Nuclear’s current order backlog to the $2,000,000 range. The DroneRAD is an aerial radiation and chemical detection system which utilizes the revolutionary Neo and Zoe drones offered by FlyCAM UAV. These aerial platforms are rugged, robust, weatherproof, and can withstand high winds up to 35 knots (40 mph) and temperature extremes (-10°C / 13°F) without compromising flight capabilities. The DroneRADwill be used by the Saudi Arabia Civil Defense for national security purposes.
The DroneRAD sensor system is designed for both radiation and chemical detection, and is highly sensitive and durable even in hostile environmental conditions. Several different sensor packages are available that range from conducting neutron or gamma surveys, to measuring airborne particulates and chemical contaminants.
- DroneRAD-ST: Search tool that utilizes a gamma scintillation probe to pinpoint locations of radioactive material in stationary positions, such as ground, buildings, and vehicles, or to perform general surveys.
- DroneRAD-P: Collects and measures radioactive airborne particulates on a filter paper. The source of the particulates could be from a fire, smoke, airborne plume, explosion, etc.
- DroneRAD-CHEM: Detects a wide variety of chemical contaminants in the air.
Additionally, all data that is measured by the DroneRAD is GPS tagged and logged/wirelessly sent back to the operator for real-time display. The data is overlaid on Google Earth Maps, so that the user can see a visual map of where (and when) the drone flew and what the concentration is at each point. Additionally, the radioactive or chemical concentration is color-coded on the map, so that the user can easily see where the hot-spots are (i.e., blue = no radiation and red = high radiation).
US Nuclear Corp. and FlyCAM UAV are also participating in the Regional Emergency Response Exercise, BAY EX, in San Francisco on January 28-31, 2019 to showcase the DroneRAD. The event is sponsored by the California National Guard Weapons of Mass Destruction- Civil Support Team and the FBI.
