Abstract : To satisfy the need for determining the conductivity and attenuation factors of individual soils as related to the operation of various electronic detection and surveillance systems which interface with the ground, a compact, durable and easily operated test set was required. This report is addressed to that need and describes the development, construction and operation of such a set. (Author)
