Abstract
SMI proposes developing a portable continuous monitoring system including a radiation sensor, positioning hardware, and wireless communication with a base station for reporting in order to strengthen the nation s ability to monitor and safely utilize radiation sources in legal manners. The local hardware, at the radiation source, will measure the radiation spectrum and intensity at its current location and as it is moved transported/relocated. This data will be reported, wirelessly, to a central command station. The command station will monitor the local hardware and produce an alarm (locally and to any designated entity) if the radiation or the positioning deviates from its boundary limits. In Phase I we will demonstrate proof of concept with low level laboratory sources and build relationships for Phase II field testing. In Phase II we will optimize the technology and field test units with local typical end users. This work will utilize our Frontliner"/Site command hardware and software as a starting point for adaptation to the needs of this specific application. We will commercialize the technology throughout Phase II and beyond.
