Static Nodes connect to the SIGMA network.
Using SIGMA’s DTECT web-based user interface, each unit can be monitored in real-time on a map of a specific area from a remote and centralised location by trained experts in radionuclide identification. The location of all units is displayed, and any threats can be identified.
The SIGMA Network
The SIGMA Network, developed as a US DHS/DARPA program, is a comprehensive network providing:
- Cost-effective, continuous radiation monitoring
- Networkable systems covering large cities or regions
- Real-time mapping with increased sensitivity
It has been successfully deployed in cities and with security forces in varying operations: urban, tactical and event-based scenarios.
Optimal coverage can be obtained using fixed location Static Nodes with Kromek’s handheld D3S NET portable RIIDs. This means that a specific area can be mapped and all potential
threats can be identified, with fixed Static Nodes working in conjunction with portable detectors.
Large volume static nodes and in-vehicle detectors are also available.
