  • 4 Steps for a Successful Industrial Wireless Network

    We’ve emphasized over the last few months that successful industrial wireless network design isn’t simply a matter of buying some hardware and then throwing it up someplace that looks like it might work. ...

  • More Customers switch to RadEye Simulators

    The News that Thermo have ceased production of the much loved Electra meter has forced trainers to re-assess their simulation requirements in order to fully meet the needs of trainees now utilising new meters for contamination and radiation surveys. ...

  • European Commission invest in more simulation

    The European Commission Joint Research Centre are adding to their existing range of STS simulators with purchases of STS's Thermo FH40 GL10 simulator and simulated Radiation probe head for use on Thermo's 4M extending telescopic pole. ...

  • Norfolk Fire & Rescue choose STS

    STS were chosen by the Norfolk Fire & Rescue Service to supply them with a complete training solution for their radioactive incident training. NFRS were looking for a solution to train their teams in the monitoring of an incident ...

  • STS Supply more DP6 simulators

    STS have received further orders for our unique training simulator for the Thermo RadEye(tm) SX. The latest orders come from the European Commission Joint Research Centre's Nuclear Safeguards & Forensics section and adds to their existing suite of contamination and radiation simulation systems from STS. ...

  • STS delivers first simulators to China

    STS has delivered its first batch of Radiation training simulators to our distributors Onbound Safetech Co in China. The order is to supply one of the Nuclear Power plants with some of STS's Safe-Series radiation field simulation equipment. The Safe-FH40G based on the Thermo FH40 and the STS Safe-Minisource have been supplied to help train technicians working in the Nuclear Plant where they are ...

  • Aerial Radiation Detection

    In this time of multiple threats to our security: dirty bomb; cyber; shooters in public places; homemade bombs; misinformation; etc. we feel extremely vulnerable; perhaps more vulnerable than ever before. With the advent of Drone technology now available to private citizens, technology previously only held by the military, the opportunity has come to marry Drone Technology with aerial sensors. ...

  • STS appoints Korean Distributor

    STS is very pleased to announce that it has appointed its first distributor in South Korea. Si Detection are part of the Satrec Initiiative group who specialise in radiation monitoring equipment and satellite technology. Mr Terry Lim of Si Detection approached STS concerning distribution of the STS range of Contamination simulators and Field Survey simulators in Korea. STS have now provided Si ...

  • Safe-Series multi instrument training

    The STS Safe-Series for the first time allows users to create diverse training environments where survey meters and dosimeters can be integrated into the same scenario and respond to the same simulated source. Due to the realistic field pattern and attenuation and shielding characteristics of the simulated radiation field trainees can quickly learn the principles of radiation safety and see real ...

  • Visual and thermal comfort and its relations to exergy consumption in a classroom with daylighting

    This paper discusses the exergetic aspect of daylighting together with luminous and thermal comfort aspect. We calculated the exergy consumption for lighting and cooling in a classroom for the cases with and without electric lighting. The full use of daylighting decreases chemical exergy input to the power plant by 89%. According to a questionnaire survey asking the students' perception of ...

  • GPR antenna resolution

    How many antennas should I have? We have all heard that question, especially coming from the newcomers to the Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) technology. The people starting to master this technology are amazed that one has to have so many different antennas for what appears to be the same thing, scrutinizing the earth. What antenna(s) should I choose? ...

  • Knowledge survey based on published works in the area of WWER reactor pressure vessel steels microstructure

    The effects of intensive fluxes of neutrons, thermal ageing or other external factors result in considerable changes of material microstructures and properties. In particular, the development of the fine scale radiation-induced defects which impede the dislocation motion under the applied stress, known as the irradiation embrittlement, leads to mechanical properties degradation which can results ...

  • A Monte Carlo simulation of a whole body counter

    The preparedness of response to the accidental incorporation of radionuclides into the human body by inhalation or ingestion is a subject of major concern due to the generalised use of ionising radiations in medical and industrial applications. Following a radiological or nuclear accident or in case of occupational exposure due to an accidental dispersion of radionuclides, a rapid methodology is ...

  • Gamma-Radiometric assessment of soil depth across a landscape not measurable using electromagnetic surveys

    Soil depth affects plant available soil water storage capacity (PAWC). This storage capacity is important for grain yield, deep drainage, and nitrate leaching in dryland environments but is difficult to measure directly on a broad scale. Measurements of ECa provide a means of estimating soil depth at spatial resolution of <50 m when sufficient contrast in conductivity exists between the ...

  • The 2007 Marie Curie prize: the linear no threshold relationship and advances in our understanding of carcinogenesis

    Better knowledge of carcinogenesis has improved the assessment of the putative carcinogenic effects of low doses of Ionising Radiation (IR). Cancer induction is a main threat to multicellular organisms and safeguards have been introduced during evolution. Mutations result from endogenous agents, mainly Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), and exogenous agents. IR and solar ultraviolet (UV) have existed ...

  • Physical dosimetry system in radiation accidents

    We experience various types of radiation accidents. When a radiation accident happens, one of the important aspects that we have to consider is the radiation dose to the victims of the accident. To judge the health effects due to radiation exposure, it is necessary to make a dose assessment. There is a variety of dose assessment methods, of two types: biological dosimetry and physical dosimetry. ...

  • Nuclear/radiological emergency response in the USA

    The US Consequence Management (CM) response element uses specific methodologies for dealing with the release of nuclear/radioactive material into the environment and has identified the potential impacts to the public and the environment. This paper will describe the history of how CM evolved, an overview of the current methods and response structure and include technical sections describing the ...
