Radioactive materials are widely used in energy, heavy machinery and medicine production, science and many other areas. This results in a higher risk of dislocation of used radioactive materials even though that sophisticated procedures are used to control the movement of such materials. For that reason there is a need for a fast affordable service to resolve situation when the mishandling of radioactive materials happens either by an accident or malicious intent. This includes storage and transportation control, emergency response for detection search and recovery of radioactive materials. This type of actions require a global approach, adequate instrumentation, logistics and sophisticated, internationally interconnected processing power. It requires airborne, vehicle-based, portable, stationary (in-situ) detection and monitoring systems, field contamination sampling and laboratory analysis and identification.
Pico Envirotec provides a wide range of nuclear and radiation technology solutions. Technology platforms are designed for quick deployment and response on a variety of platforms for a variety of project demands.

Stand-Off Radiation Detection (SORD)
Pico Envirotec Inc. has developed a new Vehicle Mounted Measuring System specifically for SORD tasks. The standard SIRIS (Stand-Off Integrated Radiation Information System) technology can be used for a custom task oriented solution, such as mobile radiation portals, truck platform mounted radiation situation monitoring platforms, maritime applications, etc.
Airborne Radiation Surveillance
Pico Envirotec Inc. offers customized turn-key solutions for Airborne Radiation Surveillance. Either, you will use a Fixed-Wing Aircraft, Helicopter or UAV platform or, we will design, build and install a system that will perfectly fit your applications.
The standard Airborne Integrated Radiation Information System (AIRIS) can be modified according to your requirements.
Vehicle Radiation Monitoring
Pico Envirotec Inc. offers a number of different solutions for Mobile Radiation Surveillance, including Radiation Mapping, Radiation Monitoring and Stand-Off Radiation Detection (SORD). Our Vehicle Mounted Mobile Systems (VMMS) include: IRIS – Integrated Radiation Information System; SIRIS – Stand-Off Integrated Radiation Information System; and customized solutions according to specific requirements of application.
Portable and Backpack Radiation Detection
PGIS-2 provides continuous radiation detection and monitoring solution for portable and backpack application. The large effective volume sensor with GPS synchronization allows the data to be acquired with non-stop surveillance, while either on-foot or using scooters. The data logger based on mobile technologies provides real-time data visualization, customizable alerting, data transfer to reachback center and selected isotope detection (ID) options.
