Abstract : The report concerns a radiological data gathering and handling system developed for use in local level Civil Defense Emergency Operating Centers. The system provides for rapid development of a comprehensive radiation level picture throughout the EOC area of responsibility, with minimum exposure of monitoring personnel and with minimum demands on communications facilities. A 'backbone' system of remote automatic monitoring instruments is described. Provisions for visual display of radiological defense intelligency, utilizing a remote controlled, electro-mechanical display board, are included. Recommended procedures, forms, staff requirements, and a test exercise of the system are contained in the report. In designing the forms and visual display devices so that they may be prepared locally, and in making maximum use of existing facilities and personnel, the cost of instituting such a system has been minimized.
