Scope and object

This International Standard is applicable to mobile radiation detection systems used for the detection, quantification and identification of photon and/or neutron emitters in the environment. This includes • point and distributed radiation sources.

The object of this standard is to: establish definitions;

• establish minimum requirements for the instrumentation;

• establish requirements for deployment and operations;

• provide test and calibration methods; and

• provide guidance to procurement for appropriate equipment.

In general, mobile instrumentation systems for nuclear radiation measurements in the environment are comprised of detectors, detector signal processors, position sensing devices, on-board data recording, operational monitoring, and real time display/alarm capabilities. In addition, advanced systems may provide data streams that can be transmitted by telemetry to operations centres.
