Overall Function
This equipment: 1. Detects the presence of radiological and nuclear material 2. Identifies radioisotopes in a wide area around the vehicular platform 3. Users may permanently mount the system in a vehicular platform, such as a truck, boat, or aircraft, and reposition it between platforms 4. Due to the larger detector element and power source, the device’s detection range may be greater than a Personal Radiation Detector (PRD), Radio-Isotope Identification Device (RIID), or Human Portable Radiation Detector
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 and event c. Spare batteries and battery recharging capabilities d. Additional 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 2 Preventive Radiological Nuclear Detection (PRND) Screener 3. If the requestor orders this resource without personnel, the AHJ should have a NIMS Type 2 PRND Screener or provide face-to-face training specific to the mission, without lag time between training and mission deployment
