The ANV S2-FV Vehicle Radiation Detection System

The ANV S2-FV is a second generation mobile detection system and is specifically designed for vehicle installations.


The ANV S2-FV Vehicle Radiation Detection system is capable of detecting and monitoring radiation levels ranging from natural background to the residual effects of a nuclear weapon detonation. The system is able to detect the initial presence of radiation with alarms being triggered if the dose rate exceeds a pre-set threshold. Once triggered, the average dose rate readings are accumulated and held in non-volatile memory or transmitted to the Platform Management System allowing mission dose analysis.

A typical vehicle installation can utilise up to three radiation detectors positioned at strategic locations providing an indication of direction for localised radiation sources. The ANV-S2-FV is an exceptionally robust, highly qualified, vehicle installed gamma radiation monitoring system. Primary uses include first response, military personnel peace keeping operations and anti-terrorist activities.

The ANV S2-FV consists of a control unit, radiation detectors with an option of including a remote indicator/display and can be integrated easily with any Platform management system.
