  DCVD - Nuclear Fuel Safeguards Imaging

Digital Cerenkov Viewing Device

The Digital Cerenkov Viewing Device (DCVD) is the newest generation of imaging devices for non-intrusive inspection and verification of spent nuclear fuel.

The innovative features of the DCVD make it a valuable alternative to other verification measures. In particular, the real-time display and the capture of digital images for analysis and comparison make this powerful instrument simple and highly effective. The system uses a high-resolution, low-light sensor capable of video rates of 14 fps or more and features an innovative support for rock-steady imaging.

The system is self-contained and runs up to 3 hours on a single battery charge. Batteries can be hot-swapped allowing indefinite runtimes.
