Title: AMS / DSA Joint Survey Report

Abstract

In April 2018, the U.S. Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration Aerial Measuring System (AMS) and the Norwegian Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (DSA) conducted a series of joint surveys at various locations in Southern Nevada including the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS). The goal of this project was to compare the responses of the two agencies’ aerial radiation detection systems and data analysis techniques. This test included varied radioactive surface contamination levels and isotopic composition experienced at the NNSS and the differing data processing techniques utilized by the respective teams. This joint survey follows the template of similar recent exchanges with Natural Resources Canada and French Institut de Radioprotection et de Sûreté Nucléaire .
