Hotzone Solutions, with its partners, MOBILIS/France and GIHMM/Austria, offers a complete solution, based on special radiation detectors mounted on a range of data buoys. These SBREWS can be installed at any sea-based location on the globe.

All of our own products are developed, tested and used by our staff during our own training courses.
Full user training is available on all products.

Sea Based Radiation Early Warning System

These systems are essential for civil protection and allow the relevant authorities to warn and protect their population from radiation hazards, stemming from nuclear accidents or nuclear type attacks in military conflicts or terroristic attacks.

These systems consist of stations placed throughout the national territory.

This early warning can be achieved by positioning gamma dose rate measuring stations and aerosol warning devices on the national territory. Currently all of these early warning stations are land based and as yet, no single station has been placed at sea. Once radioactivity has reached the first stations it is already on land; the country’s relevant authorities lose very precious time to activate their civil protection mechanism and to warn their population.

Increase Safety
Hotzone Solutions can place early warning systems – SBREWS -at sea, on so-called data buoys. These buoys can be placed up to 12 nautical miles from the shore, so about 22 km, as every State has the right to establish the breadth of its territorial sea up to a limit not exceeding 12 nautical miles, measured from baselines determined in accordance with the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. This will give the national civil response authorities extra hours to keep their  population safe, especially those directly living at the coastline.

Complete Solution
Hotzone Solutions, with its partners, MOBILIS/France and GIHMM/Austria, offers a complete solution, based on special radiation detectors mounted on a range of data buoys. These SBREWS can be installed at any sea-based location on the globe. The radiation monitoring buoys accommodate all the necessary instrumentation for measurements at sea; wind or solar generator, measuring instruments, sensors, modems, data transmission, technical compartments. The larger models are safely accessible and can be visited inside.

SBREWS are designed to measure and IDENTIFY radioactivity of gamma radiation. Its wide measuring range permits the detection of minor changes in the ambient natural radioactivity as well as measuring and identifying – spectroscopic monitoring – high dosage rates. A very unique feature – Aerosol sampling – can be integrated upon request. Constant Testing Our detectors are installed on a testing platform (data buoy) 10 nautical miles off the cost of Marseille, like this we collect data and test the system under realistic conditions at sea.

Land-Based Radiation Early Warning System – Hotzone Solutions also offers LBREWS, which are also designed to measure and IDENTIFY radioactivity of gamma radiation. Its wide measuring range also permits detecting minor changes in the ambient natural radioactivity as well as measuring and identifying – spectroscopic monitoring – high dosage rates. Aerosol sampling is an integral part of this system.
