Automated Radiation Measurement Station-2 (ARMS-2) is a dual radiation monitor that measures both “cloud shine” and “ground shine” in a dual stream of data 24/7. If in the event a nuclear accident or nuclear terrorism, the ARMS-2 can detect a radiation plume in the clouds above and the radiation falling to the ground. These measurements can be vital in deciding whether to shelter-in-place of evacuate. The data can be sent one a minute to FEMA’s RadResponder Network and WebEOC.
ARMS-2 can be deployed to monitor a wide geographic area for the direction of nuclear dispersion from a terrorist detonation such as a dirty bomb (RDD) or Improvised Nuclear Device (IND). The data can be redundantly sent by Ethernet, Cellular, WiFi communications. If one modality fails, the next user selected mode is automatically selected.
ARMS-2 employs a radiation detector 1 meter above the surrounding terrain, providing an omnidirectional radiation measurement. A second detector, mounted in the system base, is shielded by a 4cm thick lead collimator that restricts its response to a 90 degree cone straight above the station. The dual sensors provide simultaneous measurement of “Cloud Shine” and "Ground Shine" gamma radiation.
ARMS-2 can automatically shut off the air intake to a building’s HVAC system when user-defined radiation levels are reached, protecting the building’s occupants from radiation and preventing interior building contamination. ARMS-2 measures radiation from 1µR/hr to 700R/hr, with no saturation below 1,000R/hr. The radiation detecting device has been tested by Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

Real-Time 24/7 Radiation Hazard Assessment
ARMS fixed 24/7 radiation monitoring for critical infrastructure such as nuclear power plants, hospitals, schools, public buildings, data centers, EOCs, government buildings, and vital distribution centers. Available in 2 models including the new ARMS-2 with Ethernet, cellular, and WiFi redundant communications features. ARMS-2 measures "cloudshine" and ground radiation and reports dual real-time radiation data.
The roof mounted NukAlert Automated Radiation Measurement Station (ARMS) sends real time radiation data simultaneously to multiple databases such as FEMA's RadResponder Network and WebEOC. ARMS sends email and text messages to multiple personel when user defined radiation levels are exceeded. The NukAlert Automated Radiation Station (ARMS) accomplishes Task 5.5 of the Rad Resilient City Initiative. The ARMS station can provide data, through a connection to BACnet, that can shut down HVAC systems on buildings when a user defined radiation level is reached. The ARMS is an inexpensive device that can save employees’ lives and protect building contents from potentially dangerous radiation. The ARMS is a perfect system for government buildings, data centers, hospitals, schools, corporate buildings, office buildings, public shelters, and other critical infrastructure buildings.
•NukAlert’s Automated Radiation Measurement Stations reported more than 5,000 real-time reports to FEMA’s RadResponder Network during the May 19th 2015 nationwide drill.
•Since February 2015, NukAlert Automated radiation devices have sent the RadResponder Network more than 8 million real-time reports from throughout the U.S.
•More than 11 million live radiation reports from our stations to corporate and Federal radiation databases

ARMS Fixed Radiation Detector
Apogee Preperadness distributes a line of radiation detection products including the the NukAlert-Extended Range(ER) Personal Radiation Detector, NukAlert key chain radiation detector, Automated Radiation Measurement Station, ARMS, ARMS-2, and NukAlert Extended Range (ER) Bluetooth with BLE. The NukAlert-ER is a simple to use, low cost, Geiger counter, radiation survey meter, and dosimeter all in a compact package. Unlike many higher priced Personal Radiation Detectors, the NukAlert-ER Geiger counter measures radiation from 1µR/hr background levels to above 700R/hr with no saturation (overload) below 1,000 R/hr. Remote radiation sensing capabilities for deployment around nuclear power plants.
FEMA’s RadResponder Network provides an important resource for federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial organizations responding to radiological/nuclear emergencies. The purpose of RadResponder is to provide a free standardized radiation data collection and management tool for all levels of government and industry. The RadResponder Network enables organizations to rapidly record, share and aggregate radiological data, manage specialized personnel and equipment, and establish interagency partnerships.
Geiger counter, high range survey meter, and a dosimeter in one small package
1µR/hr to 700R/h ±20% , No Saturation (overload) below 1,000R/hr
Tested at Oak Ridge National Laboratory
The NukAlert-ER™ Personal Radiation Detector is a unique 'Extended Range' radiation detection instrument. It is a very sensitive Geiger counter that is also able to measure life-threatening radiation levels that are beyond the range of traditional Geiger- based devices. The NukAlert-ER accurately measures radiation over an extraordinary intensity range from 1µR/hr to 700R/hr ±20% with no saturation (overload) below 1,000R/hr. It is a very sensitive Geiger counter, high range survey meter and a dosimeter, all in one instrument, with data collection, communications capability and adjustable dose and rate alarms. Every NukAlert-ER Personal Radiation Detector (PRD) is calibrated and tested in a licensed radiation testing facility and is guaranteed to meet or exceed published specifications. The NukAlert-ER PRD also sends real time data through the Windows App to multiple live maps and databases.
NEW! NukAlert-ER Bluetooth. Communicates with NukAlert Smartphone App for connection to RadResponder Network, WebEOC, and other databases.
