Portable Exposure Rate Meters for Homeland Security
|Publication Date:||1 January 2019|
The purpose of this standard is to specify performance criteria and type-test methods used to evaluate portable radiation detection instruments. These instruments are used for detection of photon emitting radioactive materials and photon exposure rates. Instruments are used for the purposes of detection, interdiction, and prevention. Instruments may include alarms to indicate an increase in exposure rate.
This standard does not apply to instruments that are primarily intended to provide a measurement of dose equivalent rate.
In a departure from other DHS-related ANSI N42 instruments standards, some issues of radiological/nuclear
This standard specifies the performance criteria and test methodologies for portable radiation detection instrumentation used for detection of photon emitting radioactive materials for Homeland Security applications. Annex H, R/N initial response applications for preventive radiological/nuclear
