Radiation protection instrumentation - Backpack-type radiation detector (BRD) for the detection of illicit trafficking of radioactive material
|Publication Date:||1 October 2016|
|ICS Code (Radiation protection):||13.280|
This International Standard applies to backpack-type radiation detectors (BRDs) that are used for the detection of illicit trafficking of radioactive material. This standard establishes the operational and performance requirements for BRDs. BRDs are portable instruments designed to be worn during use. They may also be used as temporary area monitors in a stand-alone mode.
BRDs detect gamma radiation and may include neutron detection and/or the identification of gamma-ray emitting radionuclides. This standard establishes performance and testing requirements associated with radiation measurements and the expected electrical, mechanical, and environmental conditions while in use.
