In an article published in Health Physics' June 2008 volume, PNNL reported on the performance of Isotron's radionuclide fixative coating for its long-term effectiveness in preventing the dispersal of radionuclide contamination in the event of a dirty bomb event.
Isotron's next-generation Chemical Agent Resistant Coating (IsoCARC) has been applied and is being evaluated in a field environment. The IsoCARC technology was developed under a Navy-sponsored Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) contract. Today, this advanced technology has been applied and evaluated on an advanced amphibious assault vehicle. This application and evaluation phase represents a major step towards full deployment of IsoCARC technology.
Isotron’s advanced RADBlock™ technology contains the spread of radiological contaminants and mitigates inhalation hazards associated with nuclear events and “dirty bombs”.
January 2007 (Seattle, WA) - Water security has become a national priority following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. EPA has awarded Isotron a contract to develop a novel water treatment that will mitigate the threat of radionuclide contamination, such as that resulting from a terrorist release of radioactive material into the water supply. This technology is further expected to result in technology that is broadly applicable to other waterborne contaminants.
Isotron announces the completion of trials in Eastern Washington to determine the viability of the IsoFix coating system for dual use application to mitigate the in-theatre effects of helicopter brownout.
