The Health Physics Society (HPS), formed in 1956, is a scientific organization of professionals who specialize in radiation safety.
Firstly, its mission is to support its members in the practice of their profession and to promote excellence in the science and practice of radiation safety.
At the present time its nearly 5,000 members represent all scientific and technical are as related to radiation safety.
Some members are, for example: academia, government, medicine, research and development, analytical services, consulting, and industry in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

The Health Physics Society Vision Statement

HPS will be the home for radiation safety specialists and the trusted source of radiation safety information that enables the safe use of radiation to improve people’s lives.

The Health Physics Society Mission Statement

The Health Physics Society is a professional organization whose mission is excellence in the science and practice of radiation safety. Society activities include encouraging research in radiation science, developing standards, and disseminating radiation safety information. Society members are involved in understanding, evaluating, and controlling the potential risks from radiation relative to the benefits.

The activities of the Society are those appropriate to the accomplishment of the mission including for example:

  1. Promoting cooperation and communication among people engaged in radiation protection activities within particular geographic or functional areas and technical specialties through chapters and sections.
  2. Providing for the dissemination and exchange of information through scientific and professional meetings, education, and publications.
  3. Encouraging scientific, professional, and public education.
  4. Promoting scientific research.
  5. Encouraging and supporting the development and use of radiation protection standards and recommendations.
  6. Pursuing other activities appropriate to radiation safety.


CAEN SyS first participation at the HPS was in 2017.

This time CAEN SyS will present the new GAMON platform: “Global Measurement Platform for Nuclear Safety and Security”.

The customer can tailor the GAMON Platform on its specific needs.
For example, he can create his personal network by choosing different devices depending on the final application.
Moreover, each device can have a specific communication protocol (LAN, Wi-Fi, 4G …ecc).
It offers critical advantages and capabilities such as rapid deployment, the development of a multi-station network, and improved personnel safety and security in compliance with international standards.
These advantages are realized thanks to easy, fast, secure, and reliable access to all real time measurements.
