MS-2000 gamma-ray spectrometer. Medusa sensor.

Ben jij een licht-eigenwijze “uitvinder” (V/M) met een sterke achtergrond en opleiding in de IT?

Bij Medusa Radiometrics BV word jij onderdeel van een klein, hecht en multi-disciplinair team dat enthousiast werkt aan de ontwikkeling van high-end sensortechnologie. Onze sensoren worden ter land, ter zee en vliegend gebruikt om allerlei bodemeigenschappen in kaart te brengen. Wij werken volop aan de nieuwe generatie van dergelijke sensoren, enerzijds door steeds meer analyse en user-interfacing te embedden op de sensoren, anderzijds door de sensoren continu on-line te laten zijn via web-based platforms. We doen dat niet alleen – samenwerking met partner bedrijven en research instituten zijn integraal onderdeel van je job.

Wat we zoeken is een licht-eigenwijze “uitvinder” (V/M) met een sterke achtergrond en opleiding in de IT. Je streeft naar eenvoudige oplossingen, wilt “shinen” met mooie producten en wordt blij van happy end-users!

Een paar van de skills waar wij blij van worden…:

  • Backend development: vaardig in C/C++, javascript, shell scripting, uitlezen van sensoren over I2C/SPI/UART
  • Frontend development: vaardig in html, javascript, css en combinatie pakket zoals Vue, en/of vaardig in multi-platform tools als Embarcadero Delphi/C++/C# en de bijhorende eisen die aan deployment worden gesteld
  • Bekend met kernel en device tree compileren (optioneel met pakketten zoals buildroot of yocto)
  • Ervaring met maken van software voor custom embedded systems, bekend met software debugging voor embedded systems
  • Bekend met databases (simpele queries, beetje optimalisatie, geen mega databases)
  • IoT: deployment van servers en sensoren die data uitwisselen

Daarnaast kun je ons hopelijk helpen met jouw:

  • Kennis van common design patterns in programming
  • Kennis van scrum/Agile programming methods
  • Git-expertise

Wat wij bieden? Een prima salaris + voorwaarden, leuke werkplek, opelidingsmogelijkheden en veel vrijheid!

Oh – en als je soliciteert – linkjes naar je github (hobby)-projecten-repo, of andere platformen waarop je actief bent zijn natuurlijk welkom. Scheelt ons weer zoekwerk…

The MS-700 gamma spectrometer used for drone-borne mapping.

Medusa’s gamma-ray spectrometers are commonly used for drone-borne mapping of soil properties and geology and our sensors have proven their application. But what if a client needs to map specific isotopes. That’s why we built our highest resolution gamma-spectrometer ever!

MS-1200 sub onderwater gamma-ray spectrometer

Medusa’s gamma spectrometers are used worldwide to map soil and sediments. Due to the rapidly growing demand for sediment mapping surveys, Medusa Radiometrics invests in making the underwater gamma-ray spectrometers more manageable and more efficient. The sensor will be made autonomous, and we will develop technology to allow the sensor to communicate wirelessly with the vessel. The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) funds the research.

As a high tech company, research and development is at the very heart of what we do. Over the past 20 years, we have invested heavily in radiometric research and product development – investments in projects that almost always include collaborations with research institutes, universities and colleague companies. In all these R&D collaborations, sharing knowledge has been the most important key to success! We love the “European” approach of not being afraid of sharing technological insights with our business partners or even with our competitors – at the end we all benefit! Read more

Gamma Ray Sensor MS1000

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…

Sensor on Quad in Dutch Flevopolder

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.

Sediment mapping with a gamma ray spectrometer

In recent years, laws and regulations in the field of ecology became more strict due to public pressure. Therefore, the discharge of fines during dredging and land reclamation works and its impact on seafloor habitats is an important aspect in environmental impact assessments.

Farmers recognizing patterns in the field

To increase the (financial) yield of Spanish farmers on low-yielding rainfed soils, a EU LIFE+ project ‘Crops for better soil’ was initiated. The aim was to improve the soil itself by applying several agronomic measures and by better understanding the soil. To this purpose Medusa developed an efficient and effective soil sensing system on a […]

Gamma ray spectrometer-light-weight plane in Madagascar

The use of airborne gamma-ray measurements has a long-standing tradition in geophysical research. The airborne measurement of gamma radiation emitted by naturally occurring elements like potassium (40K), thorium (232Th) and uranium (238U) is a common method in exploration.
