Abstract
The gamma-ray radiation protection factor for contaminated vehicles has been defined and measured for two locations inside the CF Grizzly. The measurements were performed with a 60Co gamma-ray source at the DREO fallout field simulation facility. In the driver's seat, the protection factor was observed to be 11.9, while in a passenger's position closer to the rear of the vehicle, the protection factor was considerably smaller, at 8.0.
