RadiaX – Radiac Simulation for First Responders
2010 (English)In: Proceedings of Third European IRPA Congress 2010 June 14−16, Helsinki, Finland, 2010Conference paper (Other academic)
As a complement to the training of first responders in their preparedness for accidents and incidents involving radiation, a radiac simulation, called RadiaX, was developed. RadiaX has a threefold purpose; to teach (i) the handling of specific instruments, (ii) the proper procedures in missions and (iii) basic principles in radiation physics and radiation protection. The simulation is developed as a modification of Half-Life 2, a famous computer game.
