This report presents the results of a development and engineering program leading to the successful production of 30 prototypes of a new GeigerMueller tube EON Type No. 5115, designed to operate in and extend the range of the standard CD V-700 radiological instrument by one decade. OCD classification for this general detector is OCD-D-101. A definitive specification for this tube was evolved and the prototypes were evaluat-ed in accordance with this specification. In addition the prototype tubes were subjected to extensive active and shelf life tests to prove their feasibility for application in the referenced equipment. Author
