RadSearch is deployed with a team of two trained operators. They execute a customer specified measurement plan, initially making sample measurements and then performing automated scans. Where facility rules permit, RadSearch can be set to perform longer duration detailed scans overnight in unattended mode. RadSearch can be both controlled and monitored over a wireless network during periods of unattended operation.
RadSearch is normally transported in three protected cases. It can be deployed into an area and set up for operation in less than 15 minutes. Where cable connections are inconvenient, it can be powered by 24 Volts DC from two series connected 12 Volts batteries and controlled over wireless Ethernet from the remote monitoring station, which is simply a rugged notebook computer.
At the conclusion of the assignment, the customer is provided with a detailed report, which includes all of the scanned, and overlaid images, tables of measured results and both a dose- rate and activity map as appropriate.
Where sources have been detected the spectrum plots of the gamma spectra for Scan Elements of interest are also included. Accompanying the report is a uniquely identified directory with all of the raw data obtained during the measurement campaign and a program that will run on a PC for data display. As all of the measured spectra are included in the measured data files, they can be re-analysed subsequently, for example, to search for additional radionuclides that might not have been considered at the time that the measurements were made.
