|Title:||Report of Special Nuclear Material Validation Measurements for Backpack Type Radiation Detectors|
|Published:||August 19, 2013|
|Abstract:||This report provides results and recommendations from the validation testing for the different source configurations and radiation fields produced by special nuclear materials (SNMs) and depleted uranium (DU) listed within the Technical Capability Standard (TCS) for backpack type radiation detectors (BRDs). Testing took place at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Test planning, data analysis, and reporting were performed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).|
