Events

  • Radiation Biodosimetry Laboratory of INMAS granted Accreditation by Atomic Energy Regulatory Board, Govt of India.
    • INMAS has been granted accreditation of Radiation Biodosimetry Laboratory by Atomic Energy Regulatory Board, Govt of India on 25th April 2016. Thereby, INMAS becomes one of three such establishments in India. This is a unique facility of IAEA standard for providing biodosimetry services, there by augmenting medical management.

  • NEW FACILITIES ESTABLISHED

    1. Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (Sanjay NETRA)


      Sanjay Netra-NETRA is a completely autonomous, hovering Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). It has advanced features that allow the vehicle to be flown with minimal intervention, thus enabling the user to concentrate on the mission objective and surveillance of an area rather than on operating the vehicle.

      Its quick deployment time and Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL) abilities enable it to be used in wide range of missions. It is deal for short range missions and in confined areas. It is designed to be particularly useful for anti-terrorist operations, counter-insurgency operation in forest areas, managing hostage situations, monitoring border infiltration, local law enforcement operations, search and rescue operations, disaster management, aerial photography and many more situations where it is safer to send a UAV rather than human lives. You can get a complete picture before initiating any action. This aspect of NETRA helps to improve preparations for any operations that involve direct risk to human lives. It is a great cost effective option compared to conventional ways of having eyes in the sky. UAV is currently being used in CBRN Emergency Management Training Courses.


    2. Mobile Whole Body Counter (Divya Drishti)


      In case of radiological and nuclear accidents some radionuclides are released in the environment and the environment is contaminated for an extended period of time due to long half life of some radionuclides such asCs-137 (T1/2 = 30y). Gamma ray spectrometer played an essential role in detecting the internal contamination in the accident of Chernobyl. It was used as a monitor for quick detection of the internal contamination and made a classification of individuals according to the internal contamination after three months of the Chernobyl accident. Most widely released radionuclides in the soil were Ce-144, Ce-141, Ru-103, Ru-106, Cs-134, Cs-137,Zr-95, Nb-95. In order to make a decision for interventionor investigation action in case of rising the background due to radiological accident, we have to give a short brief about the dose limit, intervention level, investigation level and registration level. Such assessment requires deployment Mobile Whole Body Counter in the field itself. Terrorists are graduating fast towards CBRNterrorism. Since our Armed Forces are constantly engaged in anti-terrorism (internal Security) duties especially in J&K, NE and Maoist affected area, chances of use of Radiation Dispersal Device (RDD) on any ArmyInstallations by the terrorists are high. In order to keep the soldier fighting fit in the event of use of RDD by any terrorist outfit, each affected soldier will be required to be screened for Radioactive Contamination so as to control the panic in the Unit and for triage and monitoring of the therapeutic response.
