3D Radiation Mapping for Nuclear Power Applications

GRI-LAMP will assess radiation more quickly, accurately, and safely to inform radiation protection decisions.

Mission Driven Technology: We will work with you to optimize GRI-LAMP for your needs.

GRI-LAMP: Localization and Mapping Platform

​Overview of specifications:

  • Real-time 3D map and radiation data streamed to user control tablet

    • Isotope specific maps​

    • High resolution LiDAR maps

    • Proximity radiation mapping at 1 m or less scale

    • Available: High resolution gamma-ray imaging at <10 cm scale (pictured)

    • Available: Dual gamma-ray and neutron mapping

  • About 10 lb (depending on integrated detector) with swappable batteries

  • Integrated LiDAR mapping both indoors and outdoors: from small rooms to large buildings

  • Data processed and stored onboard the system

    • conduct offline data analysis with saved data

    • e.g. ​compare multiple surveys of an area

  • Additional services for high-resolution data processing and robotic platform integration available

  • Remotely deployable on unmanned platforms (UAS/UGV)

  • Future software upgrades, so you always have the most advanced radiation mapping capability

Radiation Protection

Localize point and distributed source terms and hotspots with live-time information and a full 3D model produced in minutes.


  • Quickly assess a room or building in minutes with a single measurement.

  • Use live-time information to adjust measurement (e.g. avoid a hot area or focus on a problem area)

  • Avoid missing any hotspots with a 360 degree, 3D view of the work site (depending on physical access)

  • Optimize shielding to ensure full coverage and protection

  • Optional integration with unmanned robots for use in hot or inaccessible areas

  • Easily survey areas multiple times to inform maintenance planning during day-to-day operations or refueling outages

Safer, more efficient radiation mapping on UAVs and ground robots

GRI-LAMP is deployable on unmanned platforms to enable safer and more efficient operations whether you're conducting routine surveys or responding to an emergency. 


Deploying LAMP on unmanned platforms:

  • Reduces dose to workers - avoid sending operators into or near high radiation areas

  • Reduces risk of injury to access difficult to reach areas (such as the exterior of buildings, pipelines, or rough terrain)

GRI-LAMP provides live-time results to enable efficient surveys of hot or inaccessible areas and rapid and dynamic response to an accident or emergency.  Live-time information is streamed to the control tablet, so you can see the results immediately and make rapid decisions as the system collects data on the robotic platform.
