33 Detecting radiation The CellRAD prototype is an early warning system for detecting radiological materials. Unmodified commercial cellular smartphones can be made to detect nuclear material from several feet away depending upon factors such as source strength distance from the smartphone and shielding. A large-scale deployable mobile network sensor array for radiation detection can be quickly built using software uploaded to an Android smartphone. A host computer can collect the smartphone data to analyze process and visualize the location of radiation sources. Response personnel may then be notified to investigate or verify initial findings using high-caliber radiological detection equipment. Radiological response training First-responders to radiological emergencies are better prepared thanks to training organized by DOEs National Nuclear Security Administration. INL experts are members of International Radiological Assistance Program Training for Emergency Response I-RAPTER teams that conducted 2012 training in Thailand Slovenia and Austria. Collectively the sessions trained 92 responders representing more than two dozen countries. Recognizing expertise Igor Bolshinsky Mike Tyacke Ken Allen INL experts have led operational efforts for the NNSAs Global Threat Reduction Initiative and its continued securing of more than 1700 kg of Russian-origin highly enriched uranium nuclear fuel. Theyve helped oversee fuel shipments from Uzbekistan Poland Czech Republic and Kazakhstan. Eric Woolstenhulme The INL reactor engineer helped convert a research reactor in Mexico to operate using low-enriched uranium. Eric helped orchestrate delivery of the new fuel. President Obama lauded the reactor conversion at the Nuclear Security Summit in South Korea. Gus Caffrey INLs Lifetime Achievement Award acknowledges the career achievements of a scientist or engineer who has made nationally and internationally recognized contribu- tions. Gus holding award at left has worked as an INL physicist for more than 30 years. He developed the RD 100 Award-winning Portable Isotopic Neutron Spectroscopy system and the nuclear fuel cask scanner described on the previous page. This was a very complex operation and it could not have been done without the critical support of your organization. Thomas P.
