By utilizing the processing and user interface capabilities of smart phones and tablets, the analyses of spectra, normally left to laboratory-type environments, can be performed real-time, in-field.  CNSI began the development of the GammaSight in 2012 with this end in-mind.  GammaSight is a pocket-sized detector assembly, containing a complete MCA coupled to a scintillation detector, such as NaI(Tl).  The device connects to a smart phone or tablet via Bluetooth, where the user controls the operation of the device and receives data and spectra for display, mapping and analysis.  An Android-based application controls the operation, data analysis, data display, and storage/transmission.  GammaSight is configured to be Radresponder compatible.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand how smart phone/tablet APPS can be used to improve in-field, real-time radiation measurement evaluations.  
  2. Understand how gamma spectral analysis improved detection capability.
  3. Understand the advantages of timely decisions for responding to radiological events.
