2 RADIATION DETECTION & ANALYSIS SYSTEMS FOR WATER On Line Remote Sensing Systems On-line remote monitoring of gamma radiation in seawater using spectroscopy and gross monitoring detectors with remote command and control of sensors with data transmission to base station. This system deploy the widely used DORRIS Software that can be expanded to increase number of stations and add additional types of sensors. Data transmission can be accomplished by Fiber optics, VSAT, GPRS, Wireless, or WLAN/TCPIP protocols. On-line remote monitoring of seawater for gamma radiation using spectroscopy detectors with remote command and control of sensors with data transmission to based station based on WLAN/TCPIP protocol. (we provide a choice of 2 different spectroscopy systems) On-line monitoring of water at supply station at water inlet with no need for remote sensors for gamma and alpha/beta radiation.

4 On-Line Remote Sensing Systems Environmental Network Monitoring System The Environmental Network Monitoring System concept is used for the remote surveillance of radio activity (contamination and exposition). Environmental Network Monitoring System is based on 2 types of entities: the Detection Station (DS) and the Central Station (CS). These entities exchange information by means of various telecommunication means. There are no distance restrictions between these 2 entities. A single Detection Station can warn different Central Stations providing redundancy for critical infrastructures monitoring. When redundancy is less critical, a single Central Station can communicate with several Detection Stations for cost effective solution. This concept is designed for native scaling-up to accommodate small scale and local as well as nationwide - or even worldwide radiological monitoring networks.

5 On-Line Remote Sensing Systems Environmental Network Monitoring Systems are very sensitive, submersible Detection Stations for water radiological monitoring in environmental or industrial applications. The system offers very high sensitivity, availability, and autonomy.

6 On-Line Remote Sensing Systems Environmental Network Monitoring System PROBE For more than 10 years, there has been a specific probe for environmental water monitoring based on gamma spectrometry. This capability has been adapted for other type of measurement like dose rate in air measurement. Newly developed interface uses a very high performance dose rate probe model GDDS on the existing Environmental Network Monitoring System platform to perform on-line air dose rate monitoring. The GDDS instrument performs dose rate measurement in the air using two GM (Geiger Mueller) detectors. The measuring range is between 1E-09 to 1 Sv/h. The probe runs itself the calculation and conversion to provide the results in Sv/h. In order to optimize the measurement accuracy, the acquisition strategy is based on a sliding average. A watchdog mode is set to detect any abnormal changes of dose rate.

7 On-Line Remote Sensing Systems Liquid Monitor The LM1 monitoring system is a Gamma Scintillation Detector useable in an on-line format. This solution is designed for cost effective operation over the plant lifetime. Designed to minimize air voids and the accumulation of unwanted debris inside the sample chamber to extend maintenance cycles and maintain sensitivity. Dora-I Display and Control Unit Distributed display & control unit Robust Communications including RS485 and TCP/IP Digital & Analog Input/Output circuitry Simultaneous data processing Inline Liquid Monitor Designed to continuously measure the quantity of radioactive gamma isotopes in the customer pipe section Two designs One to fit around the customer piping, and one has a spool piece to replace a section of the piping Designed to minimize the impact on the customer environment, and never break the pressure

8 On-Line Remote Sensing Systems DORIS provides real-time data reporting and control through a user-friendly graphics display with an easy to use interface. Radiation Data is collected, analyzed, displayed and recorded in real-time while posting alarms for operator notification.

11 On-Line Remote Sensing Systems NEX-BETA-ABG Detects ALPHA, BETA, AND GAMMA AVAILABLE IN PORTABLE OR INSTALLED VERSIONS MEASURES AT OR BELOW EPA/DHS PAG LEVELS REAL TIME, IN-LINE, CONTINUOUS For the first time in a Continuous Real Time monitor, the Model NEX-BETAABG continuously monitors the water using ultra-sensitive, radiation detectors. The information from these detectors are analyzed and displayed in units of picocuries per liter. The count times are user settable and calculations are automatically updated every 2 minutes, every hour and every day in NexBeta-ABG-9. The longer update times correspond with greater precision and increased sensitivity. Sensitivities in the daily updates each meet or exceed the DHS protective Action Guideline Levels for drinking water.
