DigiWaste Platform

World’s First Fully Digital Platform for Nuclear Waste Management

  • Data Access, quick access to all information produced during the D&D activity cycle
  • Tagging, easy identification and tracking of all RFID-tagged items
  • Automation, automatic inventory of tagged waste containers and report generation
  • Categorization, waste bagging, categorization and grouped-waste monitoring
  • Task Assignement, operator-specific tasks and instructions assignments
  • Sorting, waste sorting according to user defined criteria
  • Synchronization, continous monitoring and update of waste data
  • Traceability, historical data traceability of the waste
  • Mapping, new-site characterization with interactive mapping of sources

Overview

The CAEN SyS DigiWaste Platform is the first fully comprehensive solution which provides seamless digitization of D&D activities. The system offers easy tracking of any type of radioactive material or object produced via D&D operations thanks to the use of specialized, radiation tolerant UHF RFID tags. The data included in these RFID tags is integrated into a central database, where all relevant information associated with the D&D cycle is securely stored and easily accessed by authorized personnel.
The DigiWaste Platform relies on an innovative and unprecedented handheld instrument, the RadHAND. This pioneering technology combines state-of-the-art radiation measurement capabilities with read/write UHF RFID tagging, all while integrating a color camera, audio recorder, and GPS and UWB localization for both outdoor and indoor positioning. Taking advantage of
this system, D&D operators can easily identify radioactive sources and initiate the waste tracking process at the earliest possible phase of the D&D cycle.
All the information produced in subsequent D&D activities can be uploaded, collected and processed by the customizable database framework, RadBASE. This information, together with operational instructions, may be accessed by on-field operators equipped with dedicated, ruggedized, and highly portable RFID readers from the RadREAD family.

RadRFID

Rad-tolerant UHF RFID tag family
CAEN SyS utilizes UHF FRID technology which allows the Operator to read/write RFID tags at a distance and without the benefit of line-of-sight, as is required by competitive technologies.

CAEN SyS UHF RFID tags are able to sustain a total dose above 300 Gy. This guarantees longterm, reliable, and accurate data collection, updating, and storage for tagged objects.
Our RadRFID tags are available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and materials to provide the best possible fit for the many objects, containers, and enclosures found throughout the D&D cycle.

RADBASE

Database framework for data storage and integrated customized processes
RadBASE is a data management framework designed to support the development, tracking and integrationof information critical to Decommissioning & Dismantling and waste management activities. User-specific access levels determine the type of data an operator may retrieve.
