Abstract:

The ANGKQ-4 consists of a set of devices for monitoring gamma radiation intensity from as many as 10 remote detectors located as far as 10 miles line-of-sight from a central control and readout station. Either of two modes of data transmission, radio or land line, may be used. A voice communication capability is available between the remote detectors and the central station. This is used during installation, checkout and maintenance. The present design and frequency allocation for the radio telemetry limit the distance of the remote stations to approximately 10 miles line-of-sight. Each remote detector consists of a rugged enclosure, ion chamber detector, control module, command receiver, telemetry transmitter, power supply, a rechargeable battery, and an antenna. Author
