UAV webinar : 23rd September 2021 15:00

The use of unmanned aerial systems (“drones”) to characterize the radiological situation in the aftermath of nuclear or radiological accidents

The UAV webinar will take place on 23rd September 2021, 15:00

In case of a nuclear or radiological emergency the early availability of reliable data on dose rates and contamination levels in the core area of the accident as well as in potentially affected remote areas is of key importance for any governmental decision, like e.g. the implementation of proper countermeasures or the declaration of exclusion zones. Such major decisions may affect thousands of people and may have considerable social and financial impact. To investigate the radiologically contaminated area in the vicinity of a reactor can be too dangerous for people to enter to monitor radiation. The use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV or commonly named “drones”) carrying radiological detector systems have become more and more available and will become crucial for advancing radiation monitoring. In the webinar the technologies on this topic developed by the IAEA, in the European project “Preparedness” which has recently finished, and its use in Decision Support Systems will be presented by speakers of the IAEA agency, and EURADOS and NERIS platforms.

The programme is as follows :
1. Introduction. U. Stöhlker (EURADOS) and Florian (NERIS) - 10 min
2. IAEA - Current Status in UAV Based Radiation Monitoring Technology. Petr Sladek (IAEA) - 20 min
3. Unmanned aerial detection of radiological data  -  Results of the EMPIR “Preparedness” project. A. Vargas (UPC – EURADOS) - 20 min
4. Use of the monitoring information gathered by the UAV technologies in Decision Support Systems. Geert Olyslaegers (SCK·CEN – NERIS) - 20 min
5. Question and Comments

6th NERIS Workshop on-line

Dear colleagues,

The 6th NERIS Workshop is scheduled on 20-22 October 2021 will be fully on-line. Further information on the registration will be communicated in the coming weeks.

We hope being able to gather in-person in Barcelona (Spain) next year.

6th NERIS Workshop new date : 20-22 October 2021

Dear colleagues,

To comply with the evolution of the global pandemic, the 6th NERIS Workshop is now scheduled on 20-22 October 2021.

We hope being able to gather in-person in Barcelona (Spain) at Palau Macau, but we also maintain the possibility to organize the Workshop via web-meeting, partially or fully. The decision will be communicated later.

The 12th General Assembly is organized via web-meeting on 9th June 2021 afternoon from 2 to 4 PM (Paris Time).
