Is it Safe to Rescue the Driver? If you have a phone, you can find out.
GammaGuard is the Ultimate Paradigm Shift in
Radiation Protection. Replace Bulky Radiation
Detectors with Software on Your Phone
Keeps First Responders safe
Uses mobile phone camera as radiation sensors - no other sensors required
Will run in the background while phone is performing other tasks
Patented mechanical shutter facilitates switching between radiation detection and photography modes
Can automatically upload data to a central database, facilitating coordinated incident response
Will not saturate in high radiation fields
Rapidly deployable dosimetry solution during a large-scale nuclear incident
The GammaGuard Ecosystem
Using only the phone's camera, GammaGuard will warn the user of dangerous
radiation levels. Other special purpose radiation instruments, such as
the CT007 and AM003, can be connected to GammaGuard via Bluetooth. These
also use the GammaGuard app as their main user interface and all data can
be uploaded to a central database.
The CT007-S is a small (5 cm x 9 cm x 1.5 cm) radiation detector with sensitivity
similar to other radiation detectors used by incident responders , but at 1/3 the
size and, weight. The CT007-S has a minimal user interface and connects to a mobile
phone via Bluetooth. The phone, running the GammaGuard app, provides the main UI.
The CT007 is used as a personal radiation detector, when more sensitivity is required
than the phone's camera can provide.
The CT007-P features a pancake Geiger-Mueller tube for detecting surface contamination.
The AM003 accepts standard, third party external probes. (In the picture,
the AM003 is shown connected to a NaI(Tl) detector for use as a portal
monitor or as a vehicle mounted detector.) Since the AM003 uses the
GammaGuard interface, it can be used to transmit data from a large
variety of third party probes to a central database.
