Argonne’s Remote Area Modular Monitoring Technology

Argonne’s Remote Area Modular Monitoring Technology

Dept. of Energy

Laboratory: Argonne National Laboratory

Technology: ARG-US Remote Area Modular Monitoring (RAMM)

Opportunity: This technology is available for licensing by interested industry parties.

Details: The patent-pending system, called ARG-US Remote Area Modular Monitoring (RAMM), uses high-tech sensors paired with redundant, self-healing communications platforms that can work even in the most challenging conditions.

The work is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Environmental Management, and Packaging Certification Program.

Benefits:  Argonne’s RAMM technology is designed to make nuclear and radiological facilities safer by better monitoring both plant conditions as well as the most sensitive materials onsite.
