LowTrack is an inventory management software package that was originally designed to assist with the management, reporting, and shipping of low-level radioactive waste/materials using the Nuclear Regulatory Commissions uniform low-level radioactive waste manifest.
When budget constraints limited available dollars, the Department of Energy stopped providing funds that were used, in part, to
support the LowTrack users and software. Many LowTrack users expressed the need to continue support for this useful software
tool. Three elements were required to provide the desired support:
Component software engineers
Knowledge of the system and governing regulations
A cost effective means of providing financial support
The original LowTrack system designer obtained an exclusive license for LowTrack from the Department of Energy and established
LowTrack Technology & Services to continue with the LowTrack software support. The formulation of the LowTrack Users Group,
for a moderate annual fee, provides the financial support.
Yes! LowTrack will continue to be updated as new requirements are identified and as governing regulations are changed. Updated
releases of LowTrack will then be made available to members of the LowTrack users group at no additional cost. Please watch
this website for announcements of upgrades.
If you have modifications that you would like to see in LowTrack, contact Ron Fuchs, LowTrack Technology & Services (208)
523-0110 or by e-mail email@example.com. The criteria for these modifications can then be discussed.
In general these criteria include:
No modifications can be made to the format of the uniform manifest without NRC approval;
All modifications belong to LowTrack Technology & Services;
and distribution of the modified LowTrack will be made to members of the users group at no additional cost.
Special arrangement can be made for customized manifests and reports but additional fees may be appropriate.
One of the benefits of joining the LowTrack users group is the availability of a user hotline, (208) 523-0110, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your questions will be answered in a timely manner, usually on the initial contact. LowTrack Technology & Services is
available to provide individual or group training, at your expense, upon request.
