Title: Reducing the Radiological and Nuclear ThreaStandards for Radiation and Nuclear Detection
Published: December 31, 2007
Abstract: A multi-year effort to develop standards for radiation and nuclear detection for homeland security, begun in early 2002, has led to a comprehensive support system for the development, testing, and validation of effective prevention, detection, response, recovery, and forensics tools for radiological and nuclear materials detection. It also provides the key measurement infrastructure to address existing and new types of radiation sensors, data analysis techniques, decontamination methodologies and protective equipment.
