Bring high-resolution, high-throughput container scanning to storage and transshipment yards, while keeping costs down and efficiency up.
CR-Mobile provides port operators with the ability to scan 100 percent of containers via the stack. The CR-Mobile easily integrates into port operations by rapidly and accurately scanning vertical container stacks using the highest radiation detection performance technology with very low false alarm rate (<1/1,000 scans). Medical, industrial and special nuclear materials (SNM) are identified in cargo containers while differentiating from benign naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM) present in the stream of commerce.
The radiation detection and isotopic content identification functions are performed as the CR-Mobile passes over the containers. Detectors and optical character recognition (OCR) sensors are placed at each container level to allow scanning of vertical stacks as rapidly as a single container level.
Two radiation detection panel (RDP) types are used: NaI/non-He-3 detectors for primary scans and HPGe/non-He-3 detectors for secondary scans. State of health (SOH) information and scan results are acquired and processed by the onboard communications system and transmitted wirelessly and securely to a remote command and control station (CCS) for immediate action if necessary.
When dispatched, the operator drives the CR-Mobile to a container stack for scanning. The OCR and GPS system provides CCS automatic confirmation when specified scans are completed.
