Radiation Worker Training
Workers who understand how to use and interpret their personal radiation dosimeters can avoid health hazards and minimize costs for their employers. However, accurately simulating hazardous environments is a challenge.Q-Track answers that challenge with our Radiation Worker Training System.
Q-Track demonstrated a system for tracking trainees in a Military Operations on Urban Terrain (MOUT) Training Range. The training range was comprised of several steel cargo containers modified with doors and windows. The system successfully tracked tagged individuals throughout the 25 x 25m (75 x 75ft) compound, both around the outside and throughout the inside of the cargo containers.
Supply Chain Management
In a recent demonstration, Q-Track’s NFER system used a compact tracking tag developed under the NSF effort to track a forklift in a JITS warehouse. The six locator-receiver system covered 50,000 sqft and tracked a forklift to bin level accuracy with orientation.
In the event of trouble, knowing the precise location of the miners at risk can greatly assist rescuers. The more quickly the rescue team can reach miners at risk, the more likely the rescue operation will be successful. Currently, there is no technology capable of determining the precise location of underground miners.
Collision Avoidance The Q-Track Proximity Detection System (PDS) enhances worker safety in environments that can be potentially hazardous. The QT™-500 Tag provides workers and/or equipment with a protective RF shield.
Radiation Location Monitoring
Q-Track worked with ORNL personnel to integrate a teledosimeter with Q-Track’s NFER® location system. A teledosimeter enables reading of radiation levels by a remote computer. The Q-Track-ORNL Team demonstrated an ability to map radiation fields around low level radiation sources.
