Convergence and increased complexity has made tracking components and inventory, especially high value or security risks an increasingly large scale, distributed challenge for: federal, state, and local government agencies, industries, municipal operations centers (airports, docks, etc.) and other large public concerns. Lifecycle management includes component stress analysis and overall health. The methods hereby address the detection, identification and integrity of movable components in a tamper-proof manner. The selection of radioactive materials, radioactive lifecycle, their density and material insertion, and uniformity in insertion during manufacturing determine the type process in identification. A receiver sensor may be built upon geiger counter methods which are widely available technologies. The receivers will display heat maps of the radiation distribution or trigger configured notifications when the radioactive waves are within proximity sensors with sufficient range and fidelity to make detection and tracking economical.
