Overall Function
This equipment identifies radioisotopes of radiological and nuclear material; operators may also use it for initial detection of radiological and nuclear material
Composition and Ordering Specifications
1. The Agency Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and requestor should address the following prior to deployment: a. Logistics support, such as transportation and personnel b. Type of incident or event c. Spare batteries and battery recharging capabilities d. Additional device features, such as dose rate capable, low profile mode, ruggedized, and network capable e. Global Positioning System 2. The requestor can request this resource with or without the personnel component of a National Incident Management System (NIMS) Type 1 Preventive Radiological Nuclear Detection (PRND) Screener 3. If the requestor orders this resource without personnel, the AHJ should have a NIMS Type 1 PRND Screener or provide in-person training specific to the mission, without lag time between training and mission deployment
