The company’s offerings intuitively transform common electronic devices such as surveillance cameras, laptops, tablets and smartphones into real-time radioactivity detectors. Unknown to many, these devices house CMOS and CCD sensors that are influenced by radioactive signals. The GammaPix software recognizes, classifies, characterizes, and quantifies the radiation, and then produces reports that are presented as either a routine measurement or as an alarm in the event of excessive radiation. The information can then be relayed through any connected network to ultimately appear on relevant dashboards of the concerned authorities or across the community, depending on the use case. “GammaPix substantially upgrades any city’s existing radiation detection and civil defense infrastructure with minimal cost and utmost ease of installation while ensuring all round-availability and cyber-security,” says Eric Rubenstein, President of Image Insight and the inventor of GammaPix.
Having developed the core proprietary technology through private and government-funded R&D, Image Insight has built an ecosystem of solutions around it to enable citizens, as well as government and defense agencies, to build multi-pronged radiation protection networks, strategies, and training programs.
When it comes to radioactive emergency training, Image Insight offers the novel GammaPix Training Simulator™ product, which bring trainees closest to experiencing real-world scenarios. The company’s augmented reality training suite has an intuitive interface that creates realistic-sized virtual radiation sources in any geographical area for first responders and military personnel to use in adequately preparing themselves for the most intricate aspects of rescue or containment operations. GammaPix has successfully aced stringent tests by national laboratories in the U.S. and abroad and is designated as a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology (QATT) under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s SAFETY Act.
Having multiple clients from different countries including police, large U.S. Department of Defense installation, and private sports facility customers, Image Insight is holding discussions with major smart cities vendors to implement GammaPix as a value-add for their security infrastructure. “We are also working with partner sensor companies to bring their cutting-edge technologies into the fold by enabling seamless integration and secure communications,” concludes Rubenstein.
