Arctur is working closely as a partner with a radiation instrumentation specialist AISense d.o.o. on the promotion and further development of innovative gamma-ray source locator.
AISense Gamma IV is the world's first true real-time gamma-ray locator. The device is distinct from all other available in the marketplace in that it is the first handheld instrument that provides the direction vector towards a gamma-ray source in real time, within the entire solid angle of possible directions. This fundamentally changes the way gamma-ray sources are searched for and results in a dramatic shortening of search operations. Consequently, a significantly lower radiation dose is received by the personnel. Additionally, the device is able to acquire gamma-ray energy spectral information and use it for subsequent radionuclide identification (Nuclide ID). The device detects the presence of neutrons as well.

A dedicated military version is being developed to comply with demanding NATO standards. User feedback and recommendations from different military units were taken into account, maintaining the innovative core functionality while improving important military-specific aspects, starting with chassis design. The robust and reliable device will change the game in gamma-ray source localization process.
Although primarily designed to be used as a handheld device, it can be connected (waterproof wired or via switchable Bluetooth®) to a smart device, a personal computer (Windows or Linux, Mac OS on demand) or other digital system capable of serial communication for complete remote monitoring and control.
Demanding analysis of very complex spectra (e.g. with more nuclides and significant scattering) are known to be processing power hungry. The process can be boosted by leveraging the processing power of smart devices or even by usage of in-cloud HPC.
The Fortissimo project, funded by the European Commission within the I4MS initiative (ICT Innovation for Manufacturing Small & Medium Enterprises), successfully concluded in December 2019.
It consisted of two phases: the first phase ran from July 2013 to December 2016; the second phase ran from November 2015 to December 2018. The project was coordinated by the University of Edinburgh and involved 23 core partners from different European countries.... read more
