In 2020, DSi, Scannix and Technord joined their expertise to develop site remediation equipment and services combining x-ray inspection and radio-isotopic characterization of radioactive wastes.
Syscade combines, in a mobile and compact laboratory, tools for inspection and characterization of waste produced by the nuclear industry all around the world.
This process can be applied for the characterization of Very Low Level Waste and Low Level Waste.
Syscade is aimed to tackle so-called “historic” waste that needs to be characterized and for which the use of non-destructive techniques is particularly suitable.
Syscade offers a wide range of applications, from Nuclear Waste Assay, to Decontamination and Decommissioning (D&D) and nuclear safeguards to research laboratories.
Syscade mobile lab is equipped with 2 state-of-the art technologies :
• A high-definition Non-Destructive Evaluation radiography equipment to inspect and characterize the composition of drums and box contents and to provide detailed images and analysis.
• A high-resolution gamma spectroscopy system with HPGe detector to determine which isotopes are present in the inspected wastes and evaluate the activity levels. This characterisation system can be used in 3 modes:
• “In Situ” measurement mode to estimate the total activity content in each drum
• SGS (Segmented Gamma Scanning) mode to determine the activity content from bottom to top of each drum
• SGS mode combined with angular measurement to localise the homogeneity with respect to the axial distribution.
Syscade is the solution for Non-Destructive Inspection and for Characterization of nuclear wastes produced by the nuclear industry.

Baltic Scientific Instruments (BSI) was established in 1994 on the basis of Riga Research and Development Institute for Radio-Isotope Apparatus (RNIIRP, est.1966), which belonged to the Ministry for Atomic Energy of the former Soviet Union.  RNIIRP had Union-wide responsibility for the development of instruments for radiation detection and measurement for the atomic energy industry, mining, oil and gas industries, space and military applications.  RNIIRP developed a broad range of products, and the highest level of technical knowledge and skills to meet the most sophisticated technological demands of the Soviet Union. These are the foundations of the capabilities that BSI now brings to global markets.

Since its founding as a private enterprise BSI has specialized in the development and fabrication of devices for spectrometric analysis based on semiconductor and scintillation radiation detectors. Our products are applied in multiple industries: nuclear power; environmental monitoring; geophysics and the mining industry; medicine and healthcare; research including space sciences; security systems and customs control; and other spheres.  To succeed in global markets for radiation detection and analysis equipment BSI has mastered the most demanding quality standards in each market where we have chosen to compete.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

At the event we strive not only to bring you to the same location at the same time as your customers/suppliers/peers, we strive to ensure you meet face-to-face with each and every one of your target contacts and to provide you with the time you need to have multiple unhurried conversations with them and build a lasting business relationship:

• A pre-event informal introduction the evening before the conference
• A minimum of five hours’ networking built into the two day conference agenda
• A networking grid which enables you to make your target contacts aware you are looking for them
• The option to join either social drinks or dinner during the evening of Day One
• ACI’s on-site team will assist you in locating your hard-to-find target contacts & make face-to-face introductions

Of course, if there is anybody you are unable to meet over the two days, ACI’s event team will do their best to initiate contact after the event.

ACI is doing everything to ensure that all its events go ahead as advertised, returning to the much-missed and valuable face-to-face interaction as soon as possible.  In order to ensure the events are delivered as safely as possible, venues are chosen and procedures are adjusted in line with the relevant local and regulations and guidelines.

These have been exceptionally challenging times with very fast-moving updates. As we get closer to an event we look at each one individually, paying careful heed to local regulations, but without ignoring the international situation. Whatever happens, ACI will safeguard the investments that attendees have made by either automatically moving it to the new dates of the event or a full credit will be provided for use when booking a future ACI event.
