Abstract : The study developed operational requirements for the quantity, type, accuracy, and mission life of radiological instruments used in the nation's monitoring system. Five alternative logistical systems were postulated; four of the systems are based on the sudden attack activated concept and one system is based on the crisis activated concept. Instrument reliability, effectiveness, and maintenance is discussed. Cost effectiveness of the five systems postulated is presented.
