State-of-the-art gamma radiation measurement technology can improve how we manage disaster scenarios
When a nuclear emergency like the one at Fukushima occurs you need a highly effective disaster management system in place. You need to constantly evaluate rapidly unfolding events, continuously monitor and assess the level of threat from radiation both in and around the disaster area and provide rapidly accessible and regularly updated information to those whose job it is to manage the disaster. One essential task is the regular and accurate measurement of gamma radiation doses and the calculation of the risk of contamination spreading to neighbouring populations. Unfortunately, when an accident takes place power black-outs, communications breakdowns, destroyed infrastructure and lack of human resources can make the measurement of gamma radiation very difficult to do. This is where Saphymo GmbH, a designer and manufacturer of radioactivity measurement and telematics systems, has a vital contribution to make. The Gamma TRACER/SkyLINK measurement system enables gamma radiation dose levels to be measured accurately at all times – a vital component for the effective management of disaster scenarios.
