6th Radiological and Nuclear Threats to Critical Infrastructure TG meeting

Radiological and Nuclear Threats to Critical Infrastructure

6th meeting on 10-12 June 2014 in Ispra.

The full meeting of the TG was preceded by a meeting of the subgroup for the list-mode topic which finalised its deliverable with the inclusion of performance tests of digital instrumentation on critical parameters, and how to validate list-mode data files and post-processing software.

The sub-group agreed that the final report for list-mode data acquisition is now ready for publication. The full TG meeting addressed the objective of radiation detection systems using unmanned vehicles. Members gave presentations of the state of the art of this in their countries, including on remote controlled radiation measurements and sampling using rotary and fixed-wing unmanned airborne vehicles. The TG split into three sub-groups which separately worked on identifying the critical parameters associated with detection from unmanned vehicles. Conclusions were assimilated into a single draft version to be circulated to all members for comment prior to the next TG meeting scheduled for October 2014.
