  • ARG-US RFID for Monitoring and Tracking Nuclear Materials: The Operating Experience
    Published January 2014
    Under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Energy's Packaging Certification Program, Argonne National Laboratory has developed a monitoring and tracking system for nuclear materials based on radio frequency identification technology. The system, called ARG-US, has been in field-testing and deployments at selected DOE sites since 2010. This paper, written by Brian Craig, John Lee, Hanchung Tsai, Yung Liu and Jim Shuler, describes the operating experience of ARG-US at three sites—the Savannah River Site, the Nevada National Security Site and Oak Ridge National Laboratory—in both storage and off-site transportation applications.

  • Comprehensive Nuclear Material Surveillance With a Radiation Detector-Equipped ARG-US RFID System
    Published January 2014
    The tracking of sensitive nuclear materials can be achieved with RFID technology, significantly improving operational efficiency at nuclear and radiological facilities. This document, from Argonne National Laboratory and the U.S. Department of Energy, explains how the ARG-US system—designed for use in managing sensitive nuclear and radioactive materials—utilizes sensor tags to continuously monitor the health of nuclear materials' packaging, triggering alarms when necessary to authorized users via a secured local network or the Internet. In conjunction with in-vehicle cellular and satellite communication packages and GPS receivers, the ARG-US platform can also monitor and track assets in transit. (12 pages)
