Russian scientists offer system for radiation control at civilian facilities


The public joint-stock company Specialized Scientific Research Institute for Instrumentation Engineering (SNIIP for short, part of the mechanical engineering division Atomenergomash of Rosatom) has announced the development of the design for a complex system for radiation control at civilian facilities, Atomenergomash representatives told BelTA.

Radiation control systems are installed in airports, railway terminals, metro, and other public places. Such systems are an effective instrument to combat the threat of deliberate pollution of a territory with radioactive substances.

Developed by OAO SNIIP, the design provides for incorporating new detectors and fiber optic sensor lines with special qualities into radiation control solutions of civilian facilities. The special qualities offer several important technical advantages. In combination with the already available system components the complex system takes control over sources of ionizing radiation to a new level. The concept was finalized in 2013 under the leadership of OAO SNIIP Chief Designer for New Technology Andrei Gordeyev and Pavel Belousov, Head of the OAO SNIIP Modern Diagnostic Systems Lab.

“The product can be used to enable complete examination of passengers with a high degree of precision without extraneous actions or control barriers that impede passenger traffic,” explained Andrei Gordeyev.

OAO SNIIP is one of the leading scientific organizations in the area of nuclear instrument making. The company takes care of increasing nuclear and radiation safety and security of nuclear installations and radiation-dangerous facilities, radiation safety of citizenry as well as the preservation of a clean environment.

OAO Atomenergomash is the electrical machines engineering division of the Russian state corporation Rosatom. Atomenergomash offers effective complex solutions for nuclear energy and heat energy industries, gas and petrochemical industries. The company unites about 30 major manufacturing, research, and engineering enterprises in Russia and abroad.
