The D230-A is a compact lightweight self-contained gamma ray spectrometer for UAV integration. Designed with exploration in mind the D230A can be used to measure the total gamma ray intensity across landscapes for geological mapping.
The standard package contains two 104cm3 Bismuth Germanate (BGO) or Sodium Iodide (NaI) detectors with 1024 channels. Spectra of both detectors are accumulated and saved separately, with a scanning rare adjustable from one second up to one minute. For smaller UAVs with a limited payload a single detector system can be provided to reduce the weight of the instrument.
