Abstract:

   With the range and variety of radiation detectors that exist and the continuing threat of a radiological disaster in the future, the need for training of first responders and personnel in the front lines of interdiction is extraordinary and daunting. It is daunting because of the number of people across the nation that must be trained initially and who must continually maintain their training to be effective. A cost-effective solution to this need is individualized, web-based simulation training. This project will take an existing simulation development tool, assess the feasibility of creating two virtual working detectors, create a new web-based interface where the detectors can be virtually controlled, and establish the web-delivery and administration software specifications for this new approach to training on these instruments. All of this will be vetted within a framework of actual user and trainer feedback.  The initial commercial application will be to apply the new core technology and training approach to first responder detection equipment in agencies such as police, fire and EMS, and then to hospitals and urgent care facilities. Next, the application will be applied to a wider range of detection equipment.  Finally, the application will be applied to other types of first responder equipment.
