Specialized Scientific Research Institute of Instrument (included in the Engineering Division of Rosatom — "Atomenergomash") announced the development of a smart dosimeter format USB flash drive. This unit can be connected to the mobile phone, desktop PC, laptop, or other technical means and provide the user with data about the state of the radiation situation in the room in transport.
"Radically new departure from the currently existing models will be the ability of the smart dosimeter A global map of the radiation situation in the whole country, and later on the scale of the world using a standard computer type Google maps», — said the chief designer of the new technique of " SNIIP "Andrey Gordeev. "Serial production of dosimeters will solve the problem of state radiation control, which can now be solved with the help of a commercial product without budgetary infusions," — he added.
The product has a minimum dimension of 5 cm in length and 1 cm thickness. In this case, in addition to the full functions of a dosimeter, the new device can perform the function of conventional data storage. Currently released a prototype of the new smart dosimeter, the summer will produce the first batch production. The cost of smart dosimeter will be comparable to the average cost of a standard flash drive.
JSC "SNIIP" is one of the leading research organizations in the field of nuclear instrumentation, which solves the problems of nuclear and radiation safety of nuclear installations and radiation hazardous facilities, radiation safety of the population and conservation ecology.
