Berkeley Nucleonics Corporation (BNC) has released an exciting new feature in the latest update to PeakAbout, the app for the SAM 945 Isotope Identifier. Reach-Back Emailing, a new reach back function available at the press of a softkey, allows users with a cellular plan or on a WiFi network to send a reachback report spectrum and data (including GPS location) x to a predefined command hub for immediate analysis. This new feature x enables non-technical users in the field to quickly collaborate with expert support for real-time analysis and disposition. Mitigating false alarms or confirming a manifest can be greatly simplified with second-line support.

Additionally, PeakAbout now includes a useful ‘Update Indicator’ to remind the user that a version update is available. This auto-updating of the app keeps libraries current and adds features or compatibility with 3rd party devices and software as available. This real-time roll out of version updates is an exciting advantage in the field as the Berkeley Nucleonics’ R&D team develops PeakAbout for a growing range of applications.

“RIID users are often asked to provide the background, known and subject spectra and data to a support contact in real time. This app update simplifies that request. All the user needs is the appropriate email address”, comments Allan Gonzalez, Product Manager for Radiation Detection.

Berkeley Nucleonics is already working on the next version of PeakAbout, planned for a mid-2015 release. Give us a call to discuss the next suite of features planned for the Isotope Identifier App. PeakAbout manages both Backpack and Handheld radiation isotope identification devices (RIIDs).
