ARDMS Remote & Weather


Detecting the presence of radioactive material through climatic elements within from affected areas.

The radioactive material, from an area affected by some radioactive accident, can be spread by climatic elements (wind, rain) within a radius of 30 km. Thinking about it Gammasonics has developed the Automatic Radiation Detection and Measurement System – ARDMS to detect the presence of Gamma radios also could include on request as an optional the Alpha and Beta measurement.

ARDMS is composed of a radiation detector fixed to a strategic point, a weather station, solar panel and embedded computer. Everything is controlled through an easy-to-use software installed in a powerful PC (include).Weather station software.

The Weather Station Software can access the latest weather information from the PC, receiving up to 175 sets of weather data recorded by the base station.

ARDMS Remote & Weather


  • User-friendly software

  • Powerful PC

  • Automatic radiation detection measurement system ScintiRAD for measuring gamma at low levels and x-ray

Weather Station:

  • Generate detailed graphical reports, publish your current conditions on-line

  • Time, date, seconds, time zone, weather forecasting icons with tendency arrows, air pressure, and respective alarm sections.

  • Inside / outside temperature and relative humidity, wind chill, dew point, rainfall, and respective alarm sections.

  • Wind direction, wind speed, and respective alarm sections.


  • Powered by Solar Power. The solar panels and batteries provides mobility and autonomy to the Austral-Rad Weather System

  • Alpha and Beta detection

ARDMS Advance


Dedicated to radiation protection of the environment & security. Help to Detect effectively the illegal movement and criminal use of radioactive material.

The ARDMS Advance detectors CsI (NaI) or Plastic scintillator detector are mounted vertically at weighbridge providing full vertical coverage of the vehicle. The ARDMS has been developed to detect radiation simultaneously by the 2 towers to measure the level of activity with a minimum discrepancy between towers.

The ARDMS Advance can also be programmed to operate as a stand-alone where each tower is a detector with its own autonomy. This advantage is ideal for service of the system or if one of the towers has been damaged.

Another high standard advantage is the long-life battery that keeps the system full operating for 24 hours without power energy.

ARDMS Advance


  • CsI (NaI) or Polyvinyl Toluene (PVT) Scintillator

  • Continuous monitoring background measurement for each tower

  • Data logging: alarms, testing and scans

  • IP camera with night vision

  • Motion video of all events, allowing current and past events to be examined

  • Infrared sensors to detect & measure vehicle approach speed

  • Fully independent, does not require either internet or another system

  • Optional isotope detection using multi-channel analyser (MCA).

  • Purpose-built touchscreen control user-friendly interface, easy to operate with graphical options

  • Temperature sensor to monitor detector, an operational condition unique to Gammasonics. This facility automatically recalibrates the scintillator to accommodate the system to the different weather conditions.

PETRON Whole Body Monitor


Makes it possible to detect Gamma helping to minimise the risk to personnel working in cyclotron facilities and national security.

This monitor has been designed to incorporate a multitude of sensors to give total protection and ensure peace of mind. It can be positioned to designated areas which have been allocated as a green or red zone – or also known as controlled and uncontrolled areas.

​This unit has been carefully designed particularly in the way that the detection of radioisotopes is performed.

Contamination of personnel can happen in the extremities such as the hands and feet. To ensure nothing is missed, this unit has been fitted with head and foot monitors beside the body sensors for total coverage. The unit can also be supplied with additional hand monitors on request, as an optional.

​The user-friendly software permits the operator, to execute incredibly precise commands to visualise and keep records of every action performed during the scanning process.



  • Full Dynamic Background Subtract

  • High Background Alarm

  • Loss Of Signal Lights

  • Fast Response for Quick Measurement

  • Water Resistant Portal And Foot Deck

  • Operating in cps, cpm, dpm, Bq, Bq/cm2, kBq/m2

  • Two levels of password security

  • Plastic detectors for optimum detection efficiency

  • The unit is fitted and designed with an automatic algorithm that minimises over activity in individual channels. This unique feature will automatically trigger an alarm condition that will be activated when the threshold is reached to warn the operator of a high level of activity in the individual.

  • Networking Capabilities

  • Additional features available upon request.

The Gammasonics Austral-Rad Becquerel Monitor has been specifically designed and calibrated for the monitoring of food, minerals, liquids and biological products with low levels of radioactivity.

The high detection efficiency and fast decay time are the main reasons why we include an internal BGO detector with our standard unit. The 1” x 1” (25mm x 25mm) BGO detector has three times more sensitivity than NaI(TI) at 500V > 3.5 for the detection of gamma radiation. However, if preferred by the user, the unit can include a NaI(TI) scintillator depending on the required measurement of the spectrum.


The principle of the Marinelli Beaker dates back to the 1950’s, when they were specifically developed to monitor radiation in blood and urine for personnel working in research laboratories or nuclear processing plants.

The AustralRAD Becquerel Monitor uses the Marinelli Beaker principle and is widely used in many applications in a vast spectrum of industries and is key to conducting accurate volumetric measurements of isotopes. Once a homogenic mix has been prepared and deposited in the Marinelli Beaker, the beaker is placed in the AustralRAD Becquerel Monitor for immediate analysis.
