Paper Abstract

Our team at the United States army research laboratory (ARL) has implemented the design and development of a low-power, compact, wireless-networked radiation sensor array. The sensor system was developed to provide high sensitivity event detection and remote warning for a broad range of radioactive materials. The sensor can identify the presence of 1μCi Cs137 at a distance of 1.5m. The networked array operates well as a facility sensor however the architecture is designed to be operated outside the laboratory environment as well. The performance of the facility radiation measurement system is described and benchmarked to readily available check sources such as Cs137.
