There is hardly anything in the world that would be controlled so strictly as nuclear materials. The lifecycle of every unit of nuclear fuel, which is more than 10 years long, is described in more than 200 official documents. Every step is thoroughly regulated.
Manual preparation of all those documents and reports process entails significant costs and high risk of errors.
Automated nuclear accounting and control systems allow optimizing these processes significantly:
Atomic Keeper is a modern information system for accounting and control of nuclear materials that fully complies with all international standards.
Atomic Keeper has an adaptive architecture, which allows configuring the system in accordance with the requirements and regulations of a particular object and the national legislation norms.
The well-thought data visualization system provides a clear overview of the actual situation at the reactor core, cooling pools, and nuclear fuel storage facilities and detailed information on the location and state of each accounting unit at any particular time.
Atomic Keeper system can be used:
Atomic Keeper was originally designed as an open platform, easily adaptable to a variety of applications – from research institutes and nuclear power plants to national regulators.
When designing the system, we analyzed the regulations in several organizations and identified common patterns and differences in the operation processes of handling the nuclear fuel.
It helped us on the one hand to implement very flexible configuration of workflows, and on the other hand – to provide high usability and convenient visualization scenarios for everyday use of the system.
The system meets the IAEA requirements and standards:
IAEA Comprehensive Safeguards Agreement (INFCIRC/153/Corrected)
Nuclear Security Recommendations on Physical Protection of Nuclear Material and Nuclear Facilities (INFCIRC/225/Rev.5)
|Flexibility||The system can be used by objects of different size and complexity|
|Well-thought user interface||The system provides a convenient visual representation of all locations of nuclear material. Different view modes, grouping features, etc. allow quick data analysis|
|Adaptability||All operations with nuclear materials are easily customizable to any regulation changes. The system can be adapted to any object without the involvement of developers|
|Self-diagnosis||The errors found during the process of self-diagnosis are stored in a report with enough information to identify the problem area on the developer’s side without using the customer’s database|
|Confidentiality||There is an opportunity for adaptability and self-diagnosis that enables to maintain the system, fix the failures, and deliver new versions without any access of developers to the restricted information|
|Updates verification||The system has a self-diagnosis capability, which is performed for every system update|
|Localization||All forms, handbooks and reports support multi-language functionality and can be easily localized|
The system is implemented with the use of powerful and proven tools, which guarantees the possibility of long-time support and future extensions.
