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.
