TelepathTM Automated Radiation Mapping

Radiation surveys at nuclear power plants are created using labor-intensive data collection processes, and these surveys are taken at discrete points in time such that they become obsolete as radiological conditions change. Telepath™ is an innovative hardware/software platform that utilizes the plant’s existing teledosimetry system, along with location tracking devices worn by individual workers to passively “crowdsource” radiation maps as plant staff perform their normal work activities. This dramatically reduces the radiation protection resources required and ensures that high fidelity, up-to-date radiation maps are available to radworkers in real time and in an intuitive format that improves radworker practices. Telepath™ integrates seamlessly with the plant’s existing teledosimetry system and login practices used when workers enter a radiologically-controlled area.
