Technology expected to offer significant cost, safety and environmental benefits pre- and post-remediation of contaminated sites.
Recently we finished a first series of flight tests of our “drone-borne” gamma-ray sensor. To answer to the increasing demand for drone-borne sensing systems, we decided almost a year ago, to start the development of a lightweight and rugged version of our gamma-ray detection systems; the “drone detector”. The aim of the project is to create a low-weight, low power and fully self-contained sensor system fit to be used underneath a “standard” unmanned areal vehicle (UAV). A challenge that – as we found – not only involves a fully new detector design, both in hardware as in software, but also a careful look at the drone specifics as we found out the hard way when our first prototype crashed while flying…
How do you increase the accuracy of taking samples in the field? Dutch Wageningen University & Research uses Medusa’s gamma-ray spectrometer to more accurately define its sample locations and thus reducing the risk of false sampling.
