Radiation Recognition Algorithm and the Replay Tool with DNDO

Pico Envirotec Inc. participated in a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) program for the Replay Tool and Algorithm improvement with Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO), a Federal agency within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The Replay Tool System is a batch oriented application and can handle more than 5000 files, using customizable Radionuclides libraries and Identification algorithms.

The Radiation Detection System Replay Tool and Radiation Recognition Algorithm improvement have been developed during the CRADA project .

The Replay Tool is a stand-alone version of the algorithms employed in the radiation detection system to generate alarm decisions and indicators.  Its primary function is to reproduce the algorithm that is used in a Radiation Detection system as closely as possible.

The Radiation Recognition Algorithm is an algorithm used to detect, identify, or categorize radiation signatures in input data, including Radionuclide Identification from a radionuclide library.

The Replay Tool System can work with the data acquired with instruments supporting Pico Envirotec’s binary data format or any data in a format of ANSI N42.42 requirements. It can handle more than 5000 files providing resulting output data in ANSI N42.42 format.

The Replay Tool System has been tested by DNDO specialists.

The Replay Tool system can be from now on supplied with any of Pico Envirotec‘s systems for Radiation Detection and Monitoring that are offered for a wide range of customers in Homeland Security (HLS), Emergency First Response (EFR, HAZMAT), CBRNe, Border Control and other Law Enforcement and Environment Control industry sectors.
