The Remote Radiation Monitoring of Highly Radioactive Sports in the Chornobyl Exclusion Zone
Innovative measuring equipment named the “GR-Smart System” has been used on-board of an octocopter to analyzing some heavily contaminated areas of the Chornobyl zone. The developed equipment enhances both the sensitivity and the probability of detection of ionizing radiation both high and low activity with limited time of observation and measurement in one single process. The equipment has allowed one to recognize small radioactive spots of high intensity among the areas abundantly contaminated with radioactive isotopes.
