Abstract
The addition of a radiography-through-tube at the SLOWPOKE II reactor at Royal Military College, Kingston produced some inexplicably high nuclear radiation fields. As a result, DREO was called upon to make detailed dosimetric and spectroscopic measurements at various locations around the facility. This marked the first field trial of the new DREO mobile nuclear laboratory. The results confirmed the preliminary dosimetry measurements, while adding greatly in detail and accuracy. The fields are viewed as, in many areas, too high to allow full-power reactor operation.
