MicroStep-MIS
Radiation Monitoring System
Radiation Monitoring System provides appropriate turn-key solutions for measurement, data acquisition, processing, reporting and analysis of radiation and radioactivity concentration data as well as radionuclides dispersion and contamination simulations for hydrometeorological institutes, nuclear regulatory authorities, civil defense, radiation protection authorities or researchers.

Radiation Monitoring System solutions can be used within national networks to monitor a potential danger from radioactive plume dispersion from unknown or unpredictable source as well as in the vicinity of Nuclear Power Plants or different facilities participating in the nuclear fuel cycle.

Different sensors and detection systems can be used: from Radiation Probes giving the basic information about the actual dose rate and early warning to fully automatic Aerosol Monitors providing a real-time analysis of natural and man-made α/β emitters or γ emitters concentrations in the air.

Data collection system allows to acquire data from numerous locations to the central acquisition system.

IMS4 Radiation Module provides the interpretation of collected data, reports, real-time display in graphical interface and statistics on historical data to help decision makers evaluate the situation and plan their actions.

The Radiation Dispersion Model is designed to simulate the accidental release of radionuclides and its propagation through the atmosphere, estimation of activity concentrations in different air layers and surface contamination due to radioactive fallout.
