Abstract

The portable nuclide recognizing rapid radiation distribution monitoring system was developed for the in-situ detection of contamination in the field and quick grasp of the distribution of radiation levels at radiation emergency. The system was composed of a combination of the hardware (portable detector, GPS) and the software (digital map and program for the quick data treatment). Also, simultaneous display system was constructed by CDMA remote data communication method. The five sites of non-destructive testing industries were scanned for filed application. The distribution of dose rate was from 0.071 to 0.112 μSv/h showing that it fell on the environmental radiation level of Korea. It was demonstrated that the developed system with quick display of radiation distribution could be used to easily find relative hot spot and to secure the quick measure for the public radiation safety.
