Abstract : The objective of this project was to evaluate under operational conditions in a contaminated area: (1) new and untested radiac instruments, as well as older types which had not been fully evaluated; and (2) dosimeters, including the new Army Chemical Corps chemical dosimeter. Dosimeters were evaluated in both the initial-and the residual radiation fields encountered in nuclear detonations. National Bureau of Standards-type photographic dosimeters were used as comparison standards for the initial-radiation tests, while Victoreen r-Meters were used as comparison standards for the residual-field tests.
