Abstract/Summary

The aim of this project is to develop new detector technology for live-monitoring radionuclide activity concentrations in terrestrial wildlife. The primary use of such a device is targeted towards compliance monitoring for facilities that have radioactive emissions, i.e. it would provide a rapid and non-destructive method of confirming that regulated radionuclide releases are not resulting in exposures above benchmark values. The detector is being developed to measure both gamma and beta-emitting radionuclides. This presentation details the specifications and preliminary testing of a prototype that has been constructed to meet these requirements.
