Argon Sim Probes Convert Canberra Radiation Meters Into Training Simulators

Argon Electronics has launched two new simulation probe kits that enable you to temporarily convert your real radiation meters to be used as simulation detectors. This enhances radiological CBRN response training exercises on either a standalone basis for local indoor or outdoor exercises, or with PlumeSIM enabling you to create virtual table top / room and large area field exercises.

The range of simulation Alpha, Beta and DT616 look-alike Beta / Gamma probes convert the Canberra RDS100, AN/VDR-2 and AN/PDR77 detectors into a complete training system capable of responding to a selection of safe, easy to hide simulation Alpha, Beta and Gamma sources. Setting up radiological scenarios is easy and takes only minutes; all the instructor has to do is connect the simulation probes to the meters in place of the real detection probes and deploy the simulation sources as required for the exercise. The students then get to experience radiological readings they hope never to see for real, and the instructor finds out if the students understand how to react to and interpret those readings and to validate survey, recon and decontamination drills. 

A powerful remote controller provided for the instructor enables simulation of full and partial decontamination for all three probe types and each simulation probe is powered directly by the detector, enabling realistic personal decontamination exercises to be implemented in a safe, environmentally friendly manner. The simulation probes also respond to PlumeSIM, Argon’s live and virtual training system to simulate response to airborne and deposited radiological threats.

The Alpha, Beta and Gamma Simulator probe system kits for AN/PDR77 and RDS100 meters are two of many recent innovations to be developed by Argon, a world leader in the development and manufacture of hazardous material detector simulators that bring enhanced efficiency, flexibility and ease-of-use to CBRN response training. Each system includes a carry case and user manual.

Argon Electronics Argon Electronics was established in 1987 and has since become a world leader in the development and manufacture of hazardous material detector simulators, most notably in the fields of military Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) defence. Our simulators have applications from civil response to unconventional terrorism and accidental release, and international treaty verification, with a growing presence in the nuclear energy generation and education markets.
