Mitsubishi Heavy develops camera for real-time visualization of radiation via The Japan Times

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. said it has developed a special video camera that can record and visualize the distribution of radioactive materials, in collaboration with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency.

Mitsubishi Heavy hopes the video camera will be used in decontamination work in areas polluted with radioactive substances from the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, the company said Thursday.

The video camera allows real-time observation of radioactive substances accumulated on the ground or rooftops and the directions of airborne substances.

It can shoot at a wider range compared with conventional cameras as it is equipped with a superwide-angle lens that can film 180 degrees horizontally and vertically.

It works in tandem with a personal computer. The amount of radioactive materials and the type of materials are shown by different colors on the PC screen.
