ARGOS Decision Support System for Emergency Management



The ARGOS decision support system is used for consequence assessment and decision support following a nuclear, radiological or chemical emergency.


This paper will focus on the radiological domain. The ARGOS system is in operation or being commissioned in a number of European countries, as well as in Canada, Brazil and Australia. Since the initial version was released 15 years ago, the system has developed from a simple data presentation application to a sophisticated platform which integrates radiological monitoring data, atmospheric dispersion models and calculation of doses in the food chain and the urban environment.
