Future Forces 2014

Petr SLADEK, Technical Director of PICO Envirotec Inc. attended the CBRN Conference “Future Forces 2014” in Prague http://www.natoexhibition.org/?lang=en ( October 15-17 ,  2014)

Radiation Monitoring systems of PICO and ENVINET together (NUVIATECH Instruments) as a concept for Global Solution of Radiation Monitoring has gained an attention of a number of  experts from the field of CBRN .

ABSTRACT

Integrated technique  includes storage and transportation control, emergency response for detection,  search and recovery of radioactive materials. This type of actions require a global approach, adequate instrumentation, logistics and sophisticated, internationally interconnected processing power. It requires airborne, vehicle-based, portable, stationary (in-situ) detection and monitoring systems, field contamination sampling and laboratory analysis and identification.

The authors have participated in experiments and elaboration of radiation detection solutions strategy and improvement of detection with real-time reporting methods. Those strategies make the new approach possible for complex solutions to provide a global control of the radiological situations in a nuclear safety area, industry and environmental protection. Special attention has been focused on accidents and emergency situations.

The new results and applications of research and development as well as new approaches are shown in the presentation.

  NEW APPROACH TO GLOBAL MONITORING OF THE RADIOLOGICAL SITUATION

 

Radiation Monitoring

Radiation Monitoring

Radioactive materials are widely used in energy, heavy machinery and medicine production, science and many other areas. This results in a higher risk of dislocation of used radioactive materials even though that sophisticated procedures are used to control the movement of such materials. For that reason there is a need for a fast affordable service to resolve situation when the mishandling of radioactive materials happens either by an accident or malicious intent. This includes storage and transportation control, emergency response for detection search and recovery of radioactive materials. This type of actions require a global approach, adequate instrumentation, logistics and sophisticated, internationally interconnected processing power. It requires airborne, vehicle-based, portable, stationary (in-situ) detection and monitoring systems, field contamination sampling and laboratory analysis and identification.

NUVIA Dynamics provides a wide range of nuclear and radiation technology solutions. Technology platforms are designed for quick deployment and response on a variety of platforms for a variety of project demands.

All NUVIA Dynamics’ Data Acquisition systems are able to display a geographical information (map, aerial photo) overlain with the navigation information. Complete operator/pilot navigation guidance system is included in ancillary Data acquisition systems.

We utilize a reliable and versatile but flexible data recording structure to streamline our offer and deliver one cusomized set of field QC and data format conversion programs support for  all NUVIA Dynamics’ instruments.

Common philosophy and similar controls of different Data systems had been devised in order to reduce the learning time of the operator when switching instruments (airborne, track-borne or portable).

Common survey preparation and geographical image calibration, as well as post data collection trace visualization support software is included with each Data acquisition system .

The most popular  data systems:

IMPAC  (Integrated Muli-Parameter Airborne Console)  –  A real time data acquisition and navigation system designed for Airborne (fixed wing and helicopter)  Geophysical Exploration, Environmental Science,  and Monitoring Application

PGIS   (Portable Geophysical Information System) – A lightweight robust real time data acquisition and navigation system. Ideal for uranium exploration, geologic mapping or locating radioactive materials. The PGIS-2 installed in vehicles are fast and reliable ground survey systems designed for a range of mixed terrain.

NuTEM™  (Helicopter Time Domain Electromagnetic) – Compact size and light-weight profile provides versatile airborne operation in rough terrain and on-ground maneuverability.

The magnetometer gamma-ray spectrometer and electromagnetic systems can be integrated which gives  a flexibility to make a complete multi-parameter geophysical system.

 

IMPAC

IMPAC

A real-time data acquisition and navigation system designed for airborne (fixed wing and helicopter) geophysical exploration, environmental science, and monitoring application. IMPAC is integrated in a single rack-mountable enclosure that meets aviation requirements.
The IMPAC follows NUVIA Dynamics’ modular design structure producing highly flexible and easily reconfigurable instrument for Airborne surveys. Wide variety of proprietary “intelligent” instruments and third party sensors and instruments (Ex. magnetometer sensors, radiation detectors, airborne gravity-meter) can be quickly and easily interfaced.
