Project summaryThe proposed project is intended for the development of physical principles, methods and proper hardware and software for remote detection and identification, as well as estimation of dose characteristics of the sources of neutron-gamma radiations of dif-ferent destination, including armament fissionable materials, in order to use said hardware and software in customs, airports and proper facilities and equipment of safety services, as well as in order to check the observance of international treaties,estimation of ecological risk. The design of the equipment developed is based on the detection and analysis of neutron and gamma irradiations inherent to said sources and fissionable materials.
It is proposed to develop and construct a set of equipment including a high-sensitive multilayer neutron detector operating on the basis of gas counters and a gamma-spectrometer operating on the basis of compressed xenon, as well as other detectors of neutron and gamma radiations equipped with proper electronic systems of data capture and realtime data processing with the aim of safe detection and effective identification of the sources of gammaneutron emission.
The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is an intergovernmental organization connecting scientists from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia with their peers and research organizations in the EU, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States.
ISTC facilitates international science projects and assists the global scientific and business community to source and engage with CIS and Georgian institutes that develop or possess an excellence of scientific know-how.
