AT6103 Mobile Radiation Scanning System

Mobile system is designed for ground radiation survey and search for gamma and neutron radiation sources with GPS-mapping.
The system can be mounted on a motor vehicle, marine vessel or aircraft carrier with no need for any special tools.
The system need no connection to on-board power of the carrier, though can be controlled and managed by operator as well.

 


System configuration

▪ Set of monitors (1– 6)
▪ Tablet PC
▪ Accessories kit
▪ Software
Each monitor has 1 - 3 integrated smart probes.
Number of monitors and smart probes in each monitor can be selected by user.
System scalability in terms of monitors allows gamma and neutron radiation response control over a wide range.

▪ Detection of radioactive anomalies
▪ Monitoring of nuclear incident consequences at Nuclear Power Plants
▪ Discover facts and effects of nuclear weapon testing or use


Features

▪ User-selectable set of monitors and detection units
▪ High system scalability in terms of sensitivity to gamma and neutron radiation
▪ Automatic simultaneous gamma and neutron radiation scanning
▪ Search and detection of radioactive sources and real-time identification of its isotopic composition
▪ Automatic accommodation to change of radiation background level
▪ Simultaneous measurement of gamma radiation spectral distribution and dose rate
▪ Dosimetric scanning in wide dose rate range of gamma radiation (up to 10 Sv/h); readout conversion to 137Cs surface activity
▪ Scanning data are constantly recorded for further analysis
▪ Expert “GARM” software for data processing and analysis
▪ Built-in GPS receiver with connector for external GPS antenna
▪ Storage and operation in protective shock-resistant cases


Operation principle



The system operates in continuous radiation environment scan mode: continuous search, detection, localization and identification of gamma sources; search and discovery of neutron radiation.
The system is controlled by one rugged 10" tablet PC.
All monitors connect to tablet PC by BT-DU3 adapter using wireless channel.
When radioactive source is detected the system activates alarm and identifies its radionuclide composition.
Types of identified radionuclides are displayed on tablet PC screen and operator hears a corresponding voice message in a wireless headset.
Measurement results are continuously transmitted into tablet PC for subsequent processing by PC and can be plotted onto a map using "GARM" application software tools.
"GARM" application software performs automatic data transfer to a remote server (Over FTP server and if PC has a 3G communication function or can be connected to a Wi-Fi network).
The complex provides the user with uniform and consolidated measurement data regardless of type and number of monitors: Uniform gamma radiation spectrum, uniform flow of instantaneous gamma radiation impulses for detection of radiation source, unified gamma radiation dose rate and its statistical error.
