TSA RAVEN™ (Radiation Alarm and Video Event Notification) communications software is designed to both capture and view data and video images relating to a radiological detection incident. RAVEN stored data and video can be used in the rapid identification of the location of radioactive substances.
Using TSA RAVEN, a thorough review of the incident can be performed remotely and any identifying information can be relayed to response personnel in the field for possible secondary inspection or other interdiction. With TSA RAVEN monitoring software, the remote operator can assist in pinpointing the radioactive source saving time for personnel doing secondary inspections.
Advanced Monitoring Features
TSA RAVEN continuously monitors the system controller in the Radiation Detector monitor for any changes. The Central Alarm Station (CAS) operators will be alerted upon any controller change and can view original and new settings. RAVEN can monitor multiple systems and can simultaneously present data for each monitored location on screen. The live video feeds allow the operator to view activity at each monitor location.
Local Alarm Stations (LAS) can be configured to only display information that will be useful to the local user. The Central Alarm Station (CAS) can be configured to display much more detailed information that is useful for alarm trending and other data analysis. Multiple LAS or CAS locations can easily be established and through the use of wireless routers these locations can be mobile. Multi-layered password protection will restrict unauthorized access to sensitive data or video and will protect the privacy of innocent individuals.
