Princeton Security Technologies Provides Nuclear Detection Capabilities for iRobot Seaglider Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV)

August 2, 2011 - via Princeton Security Technologies

PRINCETON, NJ --- Princeton Security Technologies, Inc. announced that its radiological isotope identification hardware has been successfully demonstrated on the iRobot 1KA Seaglider UUV.

A long-range, high endurance UUV, the iRobot 1KA Seaglider measures temperature, salinity and other quantities in the ocean and sends back data using global satellite telemetry. More than 135 Seaglider UUVs have been delivered to customers worldwide, including the U.S. Navy, government agencies and organizations.

The integration of PSGY's radiological isotope identification hardware to Seaglider gives the UUV nuclear detection capabilities.

"Many nuclear power plants are located along coastlines, because they are highly water-intensive," states Alex Palm, VP of Marketing for Princeton Security Technologies, Inc. "Our technology, in concert with Seaglider, provides the ability to monitor our oceans for increased levels of radiation. This is an important capability given recent world events."

Princeton Security Technologies, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Princeton Gamma-Tech Instruments, Inc (PGT), is a supplier of X-ray and Gamma-ray Detectors, Spectroscopy systems, Radiation Detection Area Monitors and Radioactive Radioisotope Identifier products. PGT has its headquarters with highly skilled R&D and manufacturing staff in its Princeton facility.
