Abstract : Feasible substitutes for RADIAC power sources are identified and evaluated. The experimental methods and the results are described. Cautions that should be observed in the selection of RADIAC power sources are described. Cost comparisons are made of power sources considered to be suitable D-cell substitutes and conventional D-cells. Recommendations are made for RADIAC power sources and for further study topics.
