Search the D&D KM-IT
The hotline allows the decommissioning and dismantlement community to post problems
in a specific decommissioning and dismantlement (D&D) area and get solutions
from the subject matter specialists. Users can also search for previously published
problems and their solutions.
Technology provides information on decommissioning and dismantlement related technologies including robotics
and any associated demonstrations. It provides technology descriptions, benefits,
limitations, and associated links and documents. It also provides vendor information,
technology and demonstration fact sheet reports, and search capabilities.
The custom decommissioning and dismantlement web crawler searches and retrieve information
from decommissioning and dismantlement related websites. The crawler provides the
user with a listing of best-matching web pages, usually with a short summary containing
the document's title or parts of the text.
The mobile system component provides access to important D&D KM-IT features through wireless devices. The D&D community users can access the following modules from their mobile devices: vendor directory, specialist directory, hotline, technology information, picture library, lessons learned and best practices, and the fixative module.
Lessons learned provides a repository of documents published by the decommissioning
and dismantlement community users. This allows them to share their experience with
Best practices provides a repository of decommissioning and dismantlement best practices
documents that the user community can upload to the system.
The video/picture library allows community users to upload decommissioning and dismantlement
technology and demonstration videos and pictures to the decommissioning and dismantlement
KM-IT system. The videos and pictures could then be viewed by the decommissioning
and dismantlement community.
Weekly reports published by the ALARA center include the status of the decommissioning
and dismantlement activities that have taken place at various centers. It includes
the list of ALARA center activities for consecutive weeks. This feature makes the
reports available to the entire decommissioning and dismantlement user community.
The specialist directory provides a directory of decommissioning and dismantlement
experts in different areas along with their contact information. The user can search
the specialist directory by name or by area of interest.
Vendor management provides a directory of decommissioning and dismantlement vendors
along with their contact information.
Collaboration tools provides information-sharing mechanisms such as decommissioning
and dismantlement news, events calendars, links, message boards, and frequently
asked questions (FAQs). This allows the decommissioning and dismantlement community
to interact with fellow users.
The training component provides training videos related to decommissioning and dismantlement
work, ALARA Centers’ training material and custom training for the decommissioning
and dismantlement community.

Reference # : Model No : GA-72Cd
The GA-72Cd Locator detects the magnetic field of iron and steel objects and energized power lines. It provides audio detection signals that peak in frequency when the locator's tip is held directly over the target. The GA-72Cd has the option of nulling or peaking.
Designed for one-hand operations, the On/Off-Sensitivity and Volume controls are located on the underside of the cover on both locators. This provides easy access, protects the knobs and contributes to their overall ruggedness and dependability.
The GA-72Cd also has easy-to-read digital and bar graph which displays of signal strength and polarity. Once you have located a target using the audio signal, the digital readout and polarity indicators will help you to visually pinpoint the target and, in some instances, even determine its orientation.
The GA-72Cd's audio signal and the 3-digit LCD readout will peak, and the (+) or (-) bar graph will expand to full scale when its tip is directly over a vertical iron pipe. One end of a horizontal target will be (+) and the other will be (-). This difference is very significant because it helps you to distinguish between vertical and horizontal pipes.
With the GA-72Cd you can select any one of four sensitivity settings. The GA-72Cd's LCD bar graph shows the selected gain and the battery status. The GA-72Cd's headset jack can be connected to your data logger using a standard stereo audio plug.
The GA-72Cd is configured initially to provide an audio signal that is always present (Audio Output switch set to "B"). If you do not want to hear a signal until the locator is within the detection range of a target, you can set the Audio Output Switch to "A".
• Easy-to-read digital and bar graph
• Two options for audio signal
