SRBATOM officially starts to use JRODOS system

By signing the Third-Party Agreement on the use of JRODOS system with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), by the end of May this year, Serbian Radiation and Nuclear Safety and Security Directorate officially became a user of this real-time online decision support system for nuclear or radiological emergency management and, thus, joined the community of JRODOS system users.

This software, developed at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany, is used to simulate the movement of radioactive substances through the environment, as well as for the calculation of doses that the public might receive during a potential nuclear or radiological emergency. The software plays an outstanding role in building a system of protection and rescue, that is to say, in strengthening the readiness to respond to the consequences of a nuclear or radiological emergency.

JRODOS system was installed in Serbian Radiation and Nuclear Safety and Security Directorate, as the regulatory body in the field of radiation and nuclear safety and security, within the project funded by the European Commission (EuropeAid/140203/DH/SER/MULTI “Emergency Preparedness and Response in the Western Balkan Region”).
