Technical Associates (TA)

Technical Associates was founded in 1946 as a spin-off from the Manhattan Project at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Recognizing the advent of the nuclear age TA’s founders designed and built the first industrial-grade radiation detectors and monitors to safeguard the scientists building the world’s first atomic bomb. TA continues to excel in product engineering for radiation measurement and safety instruments for a diverse range of nuclear industry requirements; the result of over 70 years of dedication and commitment to exceptional radiation monitoring.

Technical Associates' special emphasis is in the detection and monitoring of radiation, chemical, and biological contaminants in the air, work-space safety in nuclear medicine, and water monitoring. Water monitoring includes a diverse suite of instruments for a facility’s water intake and effluent, and the water industry in general, including water and wastewater treatment facilities, nuclear power effluent and seawater monitors. Technical Associates developed the world’s only real-time continuous Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Tritium in a water monitor capable of measuring at or below EPA/PAG level guidelines.

Technical Associates innovation and forward-thinking recognized industry need for aerial surveillance of radiation, chemical, and biological threats, and contamination. With the development of UAV Air Forensics mounting radiation, chemical, and biological sensors on commercial heavy-lift drones for aerial reconnaissance serves diverse industry needs: first responders, security over-watch of vulnerable venues, military, oil, gas, and mining.

The design and development of the Underwater Explorer provide divers, aquatic ecosystem biologists, marine engineers, and law enforcement a tool for the safe detection of radiation, chemical, or biological threats or contamination.
