The equipment you are referring to is still produced by Radiation Solutions Incorporated. After SAIC bought Exploranium, the group of technical experts that were responsible for this area spun off and formed their own company, i.e., Radiation Solutions Incorporated.

Getting older is a *itch!!

I mean I'm still here - but it seems everything else is gone!

Anyhow, Long long ago and seemingly in a far distance galaxy, Exploranium made a survey meter with a 5 inch plastic scintillator probe.  It seemed very interesting at the time - but of course pricey.  
Its the sort of instrument that might detect things you don't really need to find HOWEVER it could find things you want to find from a much further distance or faster.

Anyhow - I was looking to see if it (or anything similar) still exists and found that Exploranium seems to have been bought out (and mostly
buried) by SAIC and I can't find any such instrument from anyone.

In retirement I don't really have the access to current instrumentation information that I used to.

So - does anyone out there know anything about this or any similar instrument?

WRT this particular instrument - anyone had experience with it?  Was it useful or did it have issues?
