  7. Advanced Compression System for Radionuclide Monitoring

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 26b

    Radioxenon monitoring systems are an important tool for detecting nuclear weapon tests around the world. These systems must be reliable and have low contamination potential because nuclear detonations can occur without warning and the opportunity to detect these events is relatively brief. Additionally, mobile systems must be compact, lightweight, and efficient to support onsite inspection and nea ...
