Abstract : This report describes measurements undertaken at the DSTO radiation laboratory to characterise the performance of two rotating modulation collimator (RMC) gamma imagers built by DSTO. The ability of these devices to image shielded and unshielded Co-60 and Cs-137 sources is demonstrated. A discussion of the characteristics of this and other gamma imaging techniques and their application in a Defence context is included.
