Case study

Design development of the CORIS360™ - the world's most advanced radiation imaging solution

Described as the world’s most advanced radiation imaging solution, CORIS360 is a game-changing technology that pinpoints the exact location of radiation sources faster and more accurately than before.

Hydrix worked with ANSTO on key aspects of the product development of CORIS360 including industrial design, Graphical User Interface (GUI) development, software architecture and thermal design. Our role was critical in enabling the device to meet the robustness and long-term performance required in such demanding environments.

“This is a great example of Australian innovation that will improve worker safety and operational decision making for anyone working in a radiation environment.”
