ASCRO is the Automated Radiation Monitoring System, which is designated for continuous automatic monitoring of the radiation and meteorological situation on the territory of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.
The monitoring network of the system consists of forty sensors. ASCRO allows you to quickly receive information from monitoring posts, which makes it possible in real time to receive information about the radiation state of the territory where it is located.
In the normal mode, ASKRO transmits information about the radiation situation to the dispatcher every hour, in case of alarm (fire), it sends readings every three minutes.
ASCRO is designed to monitor existing and potential sources of radioactive air pollution (emission sources); control of burial grounds for the disposal of liquid and solid waste; control of radioactive contamination of environmental objects.
ASCRO (ARMS) is a fenced area on which a 4x6 meter concrete house is placed, without windows, the doors alone, and an electric motor installed in the house, devices connected to antennas — sensors of the system for measuring the exposure dose, and monitoring the environment.
These systems belong to the Special State Enterprise “Ecocenter”, which is engaged in radiation monitoring and monitoring of the territories of the Exclusion Zone. The ARMS was installed both in the ten-kilometer and in the thirty-kilometer zone. They were created after the accident, began to operate in 1988.
