When we stuck a meter (PIC-6) on the side of a drum and extrapolated curie content from a standard isotopic mix of the plant that was ISOCS. Then we put Sodium Iodide detectors with multi channel analyzers next to that drum and that was new. Then we constructed standard geometry configurations for drums, boxes, and cargo containers and that was new. I suppose it is how you look at it.

PIC-6, wow we have come a long way baby.  :P

that was BTP 1983 Technical Position on Waste Classification for NRC licensees, I can only begin to imagine how DOE implements the same, lack of DOE standardization being what it is....


....Then we put Sodium Iodide detectors with multi channel analyzers next to that drum and that was new......


that could be construed as ISOCS,...


albeit the Chevy Vega of ISOCS systems,....


.....Then we constructed standard geometry configurations for drums, boxes, and cargo containers and that was new......


If your definition of new is circa 1984, then okay,...


if 1994 or 2004 or 2014, then you were working in the parish-pump provinces of all things nuclear,...


...I suppose it is how you look at it....


I look at it as what I was born to do,...



.....PIC-6, wow we have come a long way baby.  :P
 


true that,...


thank goodness!!

Point of OP is that the technology is new not ISOCS

okay, but it's only new at INL's AMWTP,...


If your definition of new is circa 1984, then okay,...


if 1994 or 2004 or 2014, then you were working in the parish-pump provinces of all things nuclear,...



or 2019 for that matter,...

a'course before this goes down that long winding road, keep this in mind:

ISOCS

   They have been using it for waste and insitu on installed equipment for safe shutdown for a couple of decades that I know of. I have noticed that sites tend to reinvent the wheel at different sites and new is sometimes new to that site or specific application.
