Decision Sciences International Corporation Key Developments

Toshiba Corporation Awards Contract to Decision Sciences International Corporation for Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Complex Project

Decision Sciences International Corporation (DSIC), announced that it has been awarded a contract by Toshiba Corporation (Toshiba) to support the reclamation of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear complex with the use of DSIC’s revolutionary muon tracking detectors. Under the initial contract, DSIC will design, manufacture and deliver a detector and tube arrays that fit into the power plant building. The detector will be part of Toshiba’s overall Fukushima Complex project to determine the location and condition of the nuclear fuel inside the plant. The information provided by the detectors will assist Toshiba in developing a safe and effective remediation plan. Muon imaging technology makes use of cosmic ray muons to determine material density and type of material scanned. Cosmic rays enter the earth’s upper atmosphere and create muons, high energy particles which naturally and harmlessly rain down on the earth’s surface. Muon tracking detectors detect and track muons as they pass through scanned objects.
