CORIS360 industry applications

CORIS360™ Industry Applications

CORIS360™ quickly and accurately images radiation across the full energy range, supporting safe workplaces across many industry settings. 

Border protection and National security

Border protection and security radiation imaging

Challenge

Screening cargo entering a country is important to prevent the passage of illicit cargo, including radioactive material. Screening techniques must quickly provide the confident detection and assessment of threats without inhibiting the flow of commerce.

Secondary screening currently involves a manual scan of a container or vehicle with a hand held instrument.

CORIS360™ solution

  • Gamma imaging of an entire vehicle/container in one acquisition
  • Fast imaging and data collection to minimise logistical disruptions
  • Identifies and locates radioactive sources, quickly differentiating between radioactive sources of concern and naturally occurring radionuclides, which are common in cargo
  • Ability to image threatening materials in the low energy range
  • Decreases the manual labour and personnel radiation exposure of scanning the container with a hand held device

Decommissioning and decontamination

Decommissioning and decontamination

Challenge

Around the world, more than 115 commercial power reactors, 48 experimental or prototype reactors, over 250 research reactors and several fuel facilities have all been retired from operation. Planning for decommissioning requires a comprehensive characterisation of the components to be dismantled. Verifying that all radioactive components have been removed before site handover is an essential part of the process.

CORIS360™ solution

  • Operates in low and high dose environments
  • Remote operation eliminates the need to send personnel into radiation areas to conduct a survey
  • Compressed sensing delivers faster results, saving time, money and resources
  • 360° x 90° field of view allows for large areas to be surveyed in one acquisition
  • Images full energy range
  • Portable system can be quickly deployed around facilities
  • Overlay of optical and spectroscopic gamma images provides planners with information that is easy to interpret and the ability to compare areas before and after decommissioning or decontamination.

Defence and military

First responders to radiological incidents

First responders and emergency services

Challenge

For first responders and emergency teams undertaking risk assessments and establishing secure perimeters quickly and effectively, is paramount. Protecting people, avoiding contamination spread, as well as improving overall safety and preservation of life, are the overriding aims.

Nuclear operations

Nuclear reactor operations

Challenge

The operation of nuclear reactors for power, research and medical isotope production, as well as the associated waste management operations, requires careful monitoring, maintenance and shielding of fuel and irradiated products often in high dose rate environments.

  • Portable system can be quickly deployed to different locations

Radiation services and health physics

Radiation services and health physics

Challenge

Health physics services are vital in ensuring the safety of radiation workers within the nuclear industry. The ability to respond to requests for radiation dose surveys, incident response and dose assessments is also a key requirement.

CORIS360™ Solution

  • 360°x 90° gamma ray imaging allows for a comprehensive assessment of radiological incidents reducing exposure to high dose environments
  • Fast start time and remote operation
  • Easy user interface allows for a quick initial investigation
  • Initial survey of the radiation scene allows a comprehensive dose assessment to be planned and executed, based on knowledge gained from comprehensive imaging.
  • Operates in low and high dose environments
  • Images full energy range
  • Verification that radiation source has been removed

Nuclear safeguards

Nuclear safeguards

Challenge

It is essential that nuclear safeguards inspectors can confidently verify that nation states are meeting their obligations under international nuclear safeguards treaties. Central to these inspection activities is the identification of the location, type and amount a nuclear material that can be traced to declared activities. Verification instrumentation must provide unambiguous, verifiable results.
