An analytical study was made to determine the gamma radiation produced by the products of a fission device. The radiation during times from . 10 sec to 2 min after fission was of special interest. Fission yield data were gathered for 5 fuels fission spectra U235, U238, and Pu239 and 14 MeV spectra U235 and U238. Decay data were gathered for the fission products of these fuels. A computer program was written to process the data which produced quantitative energy and number rates of interest in fission product gamma radiation analysis.
