We introduce a novel approach to measurements in QFT in non-inertial frames. A simple, localised, analytical model of state detection allows us to study all the standard questions of RQI and yielding simple answers with a clear physical interpretation. We apply the model to investigate extraction of the entanglement from the vacuum, completely characterize entangled state of two localised inertial wave-packets in the accelerating frame and study the entanglement degradation as a function of the proper acceleration of the detector.
