Nuclear & Radiation environments
Access the inaccessible. Build real-time monitoring. Increase safety.
Nuclear and radiation environments are extreme by nature, where failure and down-time are not acceptable, and safety is the highest priority. Miraex sensing solutions are ideally suited for those environments, enabling real-time monitoring of critical assets, and providing both alert and predictive maintenance using its revolutionary ultra-sensitive harsh environment photonic sensors, together with its machine learning software platform.
Nuclear energy and electricity demand
With the verge of massive electric car adoption on one side, and the ageing of nuclear plant on the other side, real-time monitoring, anomaly detection and alert generation on asset in radioactive and high temperature environments become critical, to maintain constant electricity generation at the highest safety level.

In addition, new EPR (Evolutionary Power Reactor) nuclear reactors and future fusion reactors will be able to cover a good portion of the new electricity demand, together with the other energy mix: solar, wind, and hydro.
Monitoring and safety challenges
Real-time monitoring is mandatory for safety. In nuclear plants, the most dangerous locations are usually located in the harshest environments, therefore sensors that can be placed at the heart of of the assets in those locations are essential.

Older nuclear plants, still in operation or on their way to be dismantled, also will require constant monitoring and anomaly detection for decades to come.

EPR technology still have a number of unknowns like their startup and functioning behavior over time. All available technical sensing solutions should be implemented in the harshest environments from the start.

For space applications, radiation-hard, small size, robust and low weight sensors are also critical for satellite operations.
Miraex Solution: radiation and harsh environments sensing solution 
Miraex designs, manufactures, and delivers best-in-class predictive maintenance, issue detection, and asset monitoring systems for harsh nuclear environments.

Miraex solutions combine revolutionary photonic sensors that are insensitive to radiation, can be placed in extreme temperature (from -272°C to +1400°C), are insensitive to electromagnetic (EM) interferences and can sustain extremely high pressures (beyond 1000 bars).

Combined with its machine learning software, to enable real-time accurate predictive/preventive maintenance, alert/condition monitoring, and anomaly/event detection.
