Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) released the ASTROCAM 7000HS, a radioactive substance visualization camera. The ASTROCAM 7000HS incorporates the technologies for the gamma-ray detector used for the ASTRO-H satellite, which MHI has been developing under entrustment from and together with scientists at the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science (ISAS) at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), and the design was modified for use on land to commercialize the product. MHI and

(MHI-MS) performed on-site residual radiation measurements at the 50 GeV Main Ring (MR) of the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) under collaboration with the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK) and the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) and succeeded visualization of radiation hot spots of the accelerator components. The outline of the ASTROCAM 7000HS, the measurement principle and the first measurement results at the J-PARC MR are described.
