High-Reliability Tracking Without Infrastructure

Breakout Session
The Savannah River National Lab joined forces with the U.S. Department of Energy's Packaging Certification team to create a program to track personnel and high-value material in the absence of infrastructure. The team evaluated state-of-the-art technologies currently in use for tracking nuclear materials before choosing an emerging capability that utilized the Iridium Low Earth Orbit Satellite constellation. Learn how the system can be used in occluded environments, such as indoors, canyons, valleys and wooded areas, as well as in hazardous environments, such as those associated with malfunctions at a nuclear facility.
