GammaTRACER - Model Spider - Autonomous Gamma Monitor for Emergencies
From Radiation Equipment
This autonomous gamma probe is specially designed to cover the needs of first responders in an emergency scenario. Based on the proven GammaTRACER design, the probe provides a reliable measurement of the gamma dose rate and wireless data transmission to the crisis center through the SkyLINK radio or an Iridium satellite modem.
The compact design and innovative self-erecting enclosure ensures a fast deployment, critical in a contaminated area. The probe can simply be thrown out of a vehicle or pushed out through an outlet. Thus exposure to personnel can be significantly reduced. Deployment by a remote controlled helicopter/quadrocopter or parachute is also possible.
Due to its excellent reception performances, SkyLINK radio provides outstanding area coverage independent from public communication networks, proven in many installations worldwide. Alternatively, data transmission by Iridium satellite can be useful for covering very large areas. As public telecom infrastructure might be affected by crowding or large area power breakdown, GammaTRACER is THE solution for emergency applications.
