RADIATION INSTRUMENTATION FOR THE CLASSIFICATION OF NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS AT SEA
NAVAL RADIOLOGICAL DEFENSE LAB SAN FRANCISCO CALIF
A survey was made of the measurement problems, environment and instrumentation requirements for the detection and sampling of clandestine nuclear explosion debris at sea. The survey was oriented toward the problems of a search team policing a world nuclear test ban and recommends improvement of existing water probing devices and development of a ship-to-water survey system and expendable depth probes. The depth probes would explode a charge on contact with submerged radioactive pools and this signal would be monitored by the ships sonar. Author
