    • Description


    System for determining direction to gamma radiation source SVNG-T is designed for continuous monitoring of gamma radiation in the external environment, determination and indication of the direction to the source of radiation, and data transferring to the on-board computer.

    The system is intended for installation on special-purpose vehicles, including radiochemical reconnaissance units of the armed forces and civil defense.

    System configuration and operation principle

    • The system consists of BVNG-T unit for determining direction to the gamma radiation source and four BDBG-T remote units for detecting gamma radiation, which are installed from outside the car on the front, rear, left, and right sides.

    • Measurement of gamma radiation DER is carried out by BDBG-T detection units. The measurement results are transmitted to BVNG-T unit, and DER levels of gamma radiation are displayed on its digital indicators and the direction to the radiation source. When the DER threshold levels of gamma radiation are exceeded, the BVNG-T unit signals light and sound alarm.

    • The system provides information exchange with the on-board specialized computer through the RS-485 interface. The maximum length of the connecting cable should not exceed 10 m.

    Additional permissible measurement error limit caused by a change in the temperature of the external environment for every 10°C deviation from 20 оС in the range from minus 30 оС  to + 60 оС, no more than 5 %
    Additional permissible error limit of measurement gamma radiation DER caused by a change in the supply voltage of the BDBG-T detecting units from 12 V to 28.5 V, no more than 10 %
