|Title:||Validation Testing of Standard Requirements for Backpack-type Radiation Detectors|
|Published:||March 18, 2013|
|Abstract:||Two gross count and one radionuclide identification backpack-type radiation detectors (BRDs) were used to validate radiological test requirements listed in the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO), Technical Capability Standard (TCS) for BRDs. For this purpose, a linear notion system was used ot simulate the relative movement between the backpacks and the radioactive sources. Data was analyzed to evaluate the standard requirements for this type of instrument.|
