ionising radiation

Our proprietary physics-based software is used to characterise complex optical and ionising radiation environments.

We have co-created software with government and industry clients to create virtual representations of real-world systems and processes. The scientific insights have guided design, planning, and operational decisions, saving significant time and money, or exploring concepts that would simply not be possible due to prohibitive cost or risk.

We use Monte Carlo ray tracing techniques, in combination with high performance computing, to accurately track particles from source (natural or artifical), through space, atmosphere or ocean environmental models, accounting for interactions with 3D objects that can be time variant, through to detection by virtual sensors or volumetric mapping of a quantity of interest (e.g. radiation exposures of assets or personnel, or the response of candidate sensing systems).


Our proprietary physics-based software can be used to optimise remote sensing system designs and concept-of-operations.

We use Monte Carlo techniques to accurately track optical photons from light sources, either natural sky background or artificial (e.g. lidar), model scattering and absorption in the atmosphere and ocean, reflection or transmission at a wind-swept sea surface, interactions with 3D objects, and detection by virtual sensors or volumetric mapping of radiance distributions.

Our insights have enabled government and industry clients to make science-informed design, planning, and operational decisions, saving time and money.
