As decommissioning engineers, Createc recognised that projects were frequently under- or over-engineered because of insufficient radiation data in the early stages, and carrying unnecessary risks and costs as a result.
N-Visage was developed as a tool to support decision making, waste management and dose reduction in decommissioning.
Frequently this was because dose-rate data can easily be misinterpreted in situations where the distribution of source material is complex or unknown. N-Visage allows managers to visualise the radiation characterisation in an intuitive 3D model.
N-Visage was initially for remote characterisation inside hot cells, reprocessing plants and reactor primary containment. The handheld instrument, N-Visage Recon, has been developed to bring the same benefits to much lower radiation situations where human access is possible.
