In this SBIR topic, DNDO has identified the necessity for an optimized PRND UI which can run on a smartphone/device and can either communicate with actual detector hardware or receive simulated input from a software component based on the user's position relative to virtual source(s). This Spectral Labs Incorporated (SLI) proposal, 'RAD/NUC Smart-device User Interface & Training Environment' (RN-SUITE), is a comprehensive research and product development program that continues our successful proof-of-concept work in Phase I to make the essential paradigm shift.
RN-SUITE is a Toolkit that combines a RAD/NUC Smart-device User Interface with a simulated RAD/NUC Training Environment. The Smart-device UI, an Android/iOS application, supports the Training Environment while also serving as a universal UI for existing RAD/NUC detectors in use across the country. The RN-SUITE Training Environment allows for the simulation of radiation detection concepts within a real space without the use of any actual radiation sources. RF beacons are used to track the trainees movement within a physical environment and the intelligent UI provides realistic radiation readings based on a previously defined virtual source. Setup tools will be developed to allow agencies to configure training exercises in indoor or outdoor spaces in as little as 30 minutes. RN-SUITE will be deployed as a cost-effective kit with all the components necessary to setup a medium scale exercise.
