Radiation Detection Modules for the Geospatial Location Accountability and Navigation System for Emergency Responders (GLANSER) System
This project furthers the goal of enhancing the situational awareness of incident commanders by integrating radiation detectors in GLANSER. As stated in the GLANSER BAA 09-02, "there is an overarching requirement and a need for this capability to have
interoperability and seamless integration amongst the other systems in the incident environment. In this manner, incident commanders and tactical decision makers will be able to enhance their overall situational awareness during an incident." In order to further the goal of seamless integration of radiation detectors in an incident environment this project will investigate the
data available from current COTS radiation detectors, likely developments in radiation detectors over the near to mid term, and the requirements for transporting radiation data across the GLANSER network. Phase I will result in the definition of network interface
node design requirements that will provide the full capability required for GLANSER integration as well as forming the basis for an eventual commercial product to fill this requirement. The team that Intelligent Optical Systems proposes for this investigation has unique recent experience with this subject matter as well
as a broad background in the applicable areas of networking protocols, low power electronics, embedded software and radiation detection.
