Abstract:

This report describes a solid-state version of the detector station electronics used in the DASA Fallout and Transit Dose Rate Measurement System. The basic report, NDL-TR-71 AD-627 077, dated Dec 1965, describes the Measurement System. The performance of the solid-state version equals or exceeds that of the experimental vacuum tube model it replaces, and it reflects both cost and electrical economies. A by-product of the design is the availability of a frequency modulated ac output signal that can be readily transmitted, recorded, and digitized without intermediate signal processors as would be required with dc data signals. The systems resulting economies are outlined. Author
