21. Recommendations for Improving Consistency in the Radiation Fields used During Testing of Radiation Detection Instruments for Homeland Security Applications
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 118.014
Topic: Homeland Security
Published: 5/28/2013
Authors: Matthew Merril Mille, Bruce R Norman, Leticia S Pibida
Abstract: Several measurements and calculations were performed to illustrate the differences that can be observed in the determination of exposure rate or ambient dose equivalent rate used for testing radiation detection systems against consensus standard. ...

22. Security Assurance Levels: A Vector Approach to Describing Security Requirements
Series: OTHER
Topic: Homeland Security
Published: 10/20/2010
Authors: James D Gilsinn, Ragnar Schierholz
Abstract: Safety systems have used the concept of safety integrity levels (SILs) for almost two decades. This allows the safety of a component or system to be represented by a single number that defines a protection factor required to ensure the health and saf ...

24. The Use of Gelatin-Based Samples for Verification of Trace Contraband Vapor Detectors
Topic: Homeland Security
Published: 7/25/2010
Authors: Jessica L Staymates, John G Gillen
Abstract: This work describes a method to produce inexpensive and field deployable samples that can be used to verify the working condition of trace contraband vapor detectors such as ion mobility spectrometers (IMS). With such instruments, including chemical ...
