Title: Review of emergency radiological instrumentation and analytical methods at NMSS-licensee sites

Abstract

This report provides a brief review of emergency radiological monitoring instrumentation capabilities based on visits to Nuclear Materials Safety and Safeguards (NMSS) licensees and on a review of the open literature. Recommendations based on findings are made with regard to instrument design and operation, training, calibration, testing, analytical methods, sampling procedures, and quality assurance. An assessment of currently available instrumentation is made with respect to types of instruments, instrument specifications, future needs of NRC/NMSS licensees as seen by instrument manufacturers an extent to which those needs will be met. 27 references.
