RadiaCopter – UAS Gamma spectrometry for detection and identification of radioactive sources
2011 (English)In: XVI Conference of the NSFS, Reykjavik Iceland, 22-25 August 2011: Current Challenges in Radiation Protection Conference Proceedings, 2011Conference paper (Other academic)
With an unmanned helicopter (UAS), known as drones, equipped with a gamma spectrometer, one can achieve both a high spatial resolution and good range, and be able to approach a radioactive source closely. Linköping University, Sweden, is proposing a microdrone system that will fill a gap between man-portable measurement systems and full-sized airborne systems, complementing the car-driven measurement systems. The system may play a unique role in many of our contingency scenarios in terms of accessibility, versatility, efficiency, and is advantageous from the viewpoint of radiation protection as it can be controlled at a safe distance.
