System is used to discover/map the location of artificial radiation sources or survey large areas of contamination. Rugged, lightweight, modular radiation detection system that can easily be deployed in any type of moving vehicle to search for unusual or abnormal radioactivity. It can also be used to survey large contaminated areas, by air, to discover localized hot spots and map the event. The Mobile Detection System (MDS) is comprised of a large volume, highly sensitive organic plastic scintillator detector, coupled to a global positioning based movable mapping system, that automatically tracks both the position and corresponding radiation measurement of the local background as the vehicle performs its mission. The data are stored to a .dbf file which can be easily exported to other programs or viewed later from the exclusive MapTrack PC program.

  • Mobile gamma-/neutron-radiation reconnaissance system operating in vehicle or helicopter (aircraft)
  • Rugged, easily relocated system with user friendly features
  • The MDS-GN has data transmission capability for radio modem or GSM cellular devices
  • Allows for a wide range of users without compromising accuracy and results
  • Remote viewing and/or control of mission from command station via wireless transmission of data
  • Fully integrated ArcView GIS for simultaneous hazard modeling and verification with real time data
  • Lightweight, modular design allows for easy relocation between vehicles
  • No hard wiring into the vehicle is necessary
  • Real time data feed into any version
  • ESRI ArcView software is standard
  • battery provides 8 hours of continuous use when fully charged
  • Can also be deployed in helicopters, emergency vehicles
  • Utilizes Natural Background Rejection (NBR) technology for instant threat assessment of radiological incidents
  • Comes with Zargus military grade carrying case
  • MapTrack program is a global positioning based movable mapping system that automatically records radiation measurement data along the path of travel.
  • Utilizes a 6 channel Global Positioning System (GPS) to closely track the exact coordinates.
  • MAPTRACK software (included) provides a real-time data feed into any standard version of ESRIs ArcView/ ArcGIS software (ArcView 3.3, ArcGIS versions 8 and 9)
  • MAPTRACK and any version of ArcView can be used separately or simultaneously
