GammaPix™ technologies detect ionising radiation using unmodified digital cameras, security cameras, smartphones, tablets and laptops. This unique low cost radioactivity protection capability allows law enforcement and military agencies to interdict acts of radiological terrorism, and first responders to manage radioactivity emergencies caused by accidents or terrorism.

GammaPix takes advantage of the inherent sensitivity of digital cameras to ionising radiation. The software allows millions of unmodified and internet connected surveillance cameras, webcams, smartphones & tablets to detect the telltale signatures created when gamma rays interact with the camera's sensor chip.
