Radiation DetectorBattelle has partnered with Rhombus Power to develop and offer platforms for detecting nuclear and radiological materials to the U.S. Defense Department.

The companies plan to jointly compete for the agency’s Man Portable Radiation Detection System development program, Battelle said Thursday.
