SRNL’s SAV-EM™ Technology

srnl savem2

Researchers at Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) have developed a system called SAV-EM™ that tracks sensors or personnel in real-time anywhere on Earth. It allows an iridium satellite receiver to detect signals deep inside buildings, in heavily wooded areas, and on oil and gas drilling platforms independent of cell towers and Wi-Fi, unlike GPS receivers that won’t work in these locations. The system combines a low-power/low-voltage nano proportional counter to achieve a small size and low power for radiation detection.

Possible uses for SRNL’s SAV-EM™ technology are worldwide nuclear tracking; monitoring hazardous gas; and the military, FBI and law enforcement.
