We are pleased to inform you that our company has just recently successfully passed through an important milestone - Critical Design Review – of the ARMNet project.

MicroStep-MIS, in a consortium with Meatecs Pte Ltd and ST Electronics LSG as the main contractor, is participating in an Ambient Radiation Monitoring Network project (ARMNet) for National Environment Agency of Singapore. The project was awarded to us in May 2017, certainly also thanks to the successful completion of a similar project on a smaller scale in this region.

The project consist of supply, delivery, installation and maintenance of 45 stations of several kinds: from a complex automatic radioactive aerosol and radioactive iodine monitors, through buoy based and inland water to compact mobile stations, each of them equipped with MicroStep-MIS Automatic Weather Station using the new generation of our data loggers AMS 111 IV.

A new kind of sensors will be integrated with our data logger AMS 111 IV, such as underwater gamma-spectrometric detector or impact sensor for detection of potential buoy collision with a larger vessel.

The data will be collected using a 3G/4G network by our dual UDCS/CLDB conforming to the 3 tier architecture requirements. New data protocol standards are being implemented by our UDCS/CLDB for radiological data, such as ANSI N42.42 and IMS 2.0 (CTBO International Monitoring System) - used by the radionuclide stations within the worldwide monitoring network of Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO).

New types of monitoring devices are being integrated with our UDCS/CLDB: A Very High Volume Sampler and Xenon Analyzer, both of them used also in the CTBTO radionuclide station network.

Our IMS4 Model Suite will provide the users two kind of radiation dispersion models: Long-range for the Southeast Asia modelling domain and Short-range for the domain of Singapore. Both of them are to be triggered on-demand with the source term configurable by the UDCS/CLDB user.

The OPC Unified Architecture standard (Industrial Interoperability Standard) being implemented as an extension module for our UDCS/CLDB will allow to distribute the measured data to other systems of the customer and allow them to apply changes in station configuration (e.g. set-up a group of radioactive isotopes that will be monitored automatically by the respective stations).
