Here it is [siternetusa.com]

What is it exactly?
What was it first developed for?

Good luck.

All the above are very creative, but not even close.

Not a kind of radar gun or speed measuring device.

No, but the "sensor" part is going in the right direction.

I don't know

Glad you could make it, the more the merrier :)

does it collect some kind of "gas" (like air,sound,laser etc) or something biological/chemical?

Wow, you covered some ground with that question.
It is related to one of the above, and I won't say which one yet.

I can't come with the name for this. <added: geiger counter> Does this thing detects high energy particles like beta particles or radioactive isotope density?

Hmm... I'm going with a stream of consciousness thing here, so bear with me.

I see 3 primary components:
1. Primary Unit
2. Collector
3. Trigger

I would assume that the primary unit has a receiver circuit on it, and the collector is tehre to minimize background interference. Due to the apparent symmetrical nature of the collector, I'd guess orientation of the device does not matter. I notice on the primary unit is what appears to be a know, possibly a variable adjustor which will change the sensitivity or recalibrate the device?

IMHO, the collector is not wide enough for it to collect sound. Additionally, it looks as though the collector is made of some sort of plastic so that rules out the ability to collect any radioactive materials except for alpha rays.

The back of the primary unit, where the 'knob' is doesn't seem to have much room for a readout display. So I would guess it's a simple feedback device. Maybe a green/red light or a beeping noise for the presence of something.

Perhaps an old fashioned stud finder? No... because that cone doesn't seem like it would work well with an emitter. BUt perhaps the device is meant to be placed up against something.

Well, you got me... hopefully some of my ranting is on target and will help someone figure it out.

Very funny. I was looking at it by the side all this time. The right side "cone" is the handler, and the "handler" is a PVC tube with an smaller tube inside. Then, the small tube connects to some device and measures concentrations on that device's output.

Or it's that I'm in need of a break and going crazy :)

It does have a receiver
I think the orientation matters

Wrong

Not sure if it has a readout

No

First clue

It was first developed by a government agency in 1991, now it is used as a commercial product - used for safety and to save money.
