Default Particle Detector

Reviewing the classic suite of Traveller sensor types across all manner of EM wavelengths and detection, it struck me that there wasn't really a particle detector.

The neutrino detector was one specialized type of course, but I'm thinking you would have a hard time detecting radiation, following ion trails, analyzing atmospheres, etc.

A solar flare should be a big EM/IR event that radar, EMF and/or thermals should pick up, so don't know that you need particle detectors for that other then lab/scout ships, but other colder/ smaller phenomena would benefit.

Am I on track here?

Side question, for fire direction , would PA or energy weapon active emitters be of use? I'm thinking they may be helpful if a target uses a lot of sand against lidar or chaff for radar.
