Teletrix

Teletrix has been supplying training programs and industry professionals with quality simulated radiation training equipment since 1988.

As the leading manufacturer of Radiation Training Simulators in the United States, Teletrix has developed numerous products as a result of extensive customer interaction, survey and feedback. Our customers have asked to be provided with the most realistic training scenarios possible without exposing their trainees to radiation. They want to ‘train as they work” experiencing the full functionality of instruments rather than the short physical detection range offered by the use of real meters and low-level sources. Teletrix responded with a line of instruments that replicates the real world through remote control and simulation.

Radiation Release Emergency Drill Training – Virtual Plumes

Virtual Plumes Overview
Virtual Plumes is computer program used to enhance the development scenarios for Radiation Plume Release Emergency Preparedness drills and then play those scenarios out in real time with field teams that will be using Teletrix Simulated Radiation Meters, Radiation Probe Paks and Simulated Alarming Dosimeters to read simulated radiation exposure rates and accumulated DOSE.  
Generate a dynamic plume model on a Windows-based laptop.  Place the laptop in the field team vehicle.  Using GPS to locate the field team during the exercise, operate Teletrix Simulators which produce dose rate readings and accumulate DOSE and force reactions from the field team as they traverse the virtual plume model seeking to identify its centerline and extents.  The team trains in the same way that they would be expected to work in a real radiation-related plume release emergency.
