The article reports on the acquisition of Detector Networks International (DNI), a small designer and developer of radiation detection solutions, by L-3 Communications Security & Detection Systems. A contract awarded to DNI by the U.S. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for several Radiation Detection Straddle Carriers (RDSCs) in 2009. The deal will provide L-3 with a product in the radiation detection sector and its own set of organic design and development capabilities.
