ARG-US Remote Area Modular Monitoring (RAMM)

Scientists at Argonne National Laboratory have developed a technology to make nuclear and radiological facilities safer by better monitoring both plant conditions as well as the most sensitive materials onsite.

The patent-pending system, called ARG-US Remote Area Modular Monitoring, or RAMM, uses hig- tech sensors paired with redundant, self-healing communications platforms that can work even in the most challenging conditions. 

The work is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Environmental Management, and Packaging Certification Program.
