    Detection dogs use Kromek kit to sniff out radiation dangers on Ukraine battlefields

    Dogs wearing radiation detection technology produced by a North East firm have taken to the battlefields of Ukraine to alert soldiers to potential harm near nuclear power stations.

    Eight dogs kitted with pocketsized detectors built by County Durham’s Kromek are helping Ukrainian troops to identify risks where there has been heavy fighting near nuclear sites. The detectors – which can pick up low levels of radiation and the type of source – send data back to the soldiers up between 20-30m away via an app that will sound an alarm almost immediately if the dog gets too close.
