The Security stage

The introduction of automatic systems in nuclear security applications increases the safety of the operators (ALARA – As Low As Reasonably Achievable) and measurements become easier and faster than before. A quick decision-making procedure is an essential requirement, as well as the extrapolation of the information from a network of sensors.

For this reason, CAEN SyS is introducing a family of security systems to better address nuclear security applications. They integrate smart technologies and data fusion processes to limit the operator exposure and providing information in real time for the optimization of prompt intervention.
