Abstract : The preliminary report describes the capabilities and operation of a prototype, wide-area, remote fallout monitor developed by the United States Air Force. This system is capable of detecting gamma intensities in a range of from 0.01 to 5000 R/hr, at up to 10 remote detecting locations, and transmitting this information by hard-line or radio telemetry to a single central location. The central station displays dose-rate information on individual meters and a single-strip chart recorder. An audio and visual alarm is given when a pre-set dose rate is reached. The system is able to operate on either 117 Vac, 60 Hz, or self-contained, rechargeable battery power in case of power failure. The final report will contain information concerning the development, design, and fabrication of this system. (Author)
