SAN FRANCISCO, March 26 (UPI) -- The Polish army has contracted Mirion Technologies Health Physics Division for radiological-measurement technologies.
U.S. company Mirion has been awarded a contract to deliver its active tactical dosimeters and portable reader systems to the Polish army. Mirion says its dosimeter technology, widely deployed by NATO forces, measure a range of gamma and neutron dose rates for a soldier's exposure to radiological threats in the field.
Officials said the order also included Mirion's XOM portable-reader technology, designed to meet field-management requirements of individual or collective dosimetry.
"This contract presents an excellent opportunity to build upon our long-standing relationship with the Polish army," Antony Besso, Mirion Health Physics Division president, said in a statement.
"Seventeen of the 26 NATO member countries rely upon electronic dosimeters from Mirion's Health Physics Division to help protect their soldiers from nuclear and radiological threats."
