Environmental Business Journal® (EBJ), a business research publication that provides high value strategic business intelligence to the environmental industry, has honored Risk Assessment Corporation (RAC) and de maximis Data Management Services (ddms, inc.) with a Business Achievement Award for Technology Merit: Online Radionuclide Data Analysis in 2021.
RAC and ddms, inc., were recognized for the creation of a highly innovative and unique new tool in the RACER application, called AutoDose, which facilitates communication of accurate and nearly instantaneous information about the magnitude of dose following a release of radioactivity to the atmosphere. The AutoDose interface allows users to enter the timing, magnitude, and composition of a radionuclide release. This is evaluated using 15-minute-average meteorological conditions during the release and the physical characteristics of the release point. This feature has proven invaluable for clients that routinely convert concentration data to dose information in a manner that is highly usable.
