Abstract : The authors measured dose transmission factors for the F-102 aircraft using a Pu-Be source neutron flux incident from several directions around the cockpit. Neutron dose measurements were made with an Eberline PRN-4 neutron dosimeter, while the gamma radiation induced by the neutron interactions in the aircraft was measured using a Geiger-Mueller tube. Transmission factors for cockpit exposure doses and body depth doses (approximated by using a paraffin shield) were measured and tabulated. The cockpit exposure dose transmission factors ranged from .36 to 1.17 with most values greater than .8. The depth dose transmission factors varied from .16 to.8 with most values near .5. (Author)
