National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) - Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) - Gaithersburg, MD.

PSS designed, procured, and installed a specialized paging system in the neutron test facility at NIST.  The system provided two-way communication for normal day to day activities and emergency response at the NCNR.  There were 110 paging stations and 130 speakers located throughout the facility, including high radiation areas, outdoor stations requiring waterproof enclosures, and noisy areas requiring acoustic booths.  To accommodate these various requirements, PSS selected a paging system designed specifically for nuclear facilities.  The selected system did not contain complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) technology, so that it could withstand the radiation in the core of the facility.

In addition to the radiation, weatherproofing, and noise-proofing considerations, the primary experimental area was 36,200 square feet and 40 feet high.  This area is also noisy, so large, strategically spaced speakers were required.  Other areas in the facility were standard office space in which speakers were installed in acoustical ceiling tiles.  Finally, head phones were installed in 6 areas with extreme noise.
