Abstract
Measurements of dose rates at 10 locations inside a radiologically contaminated CF Grizzly Light Armoured Vehicle were made at a French army facility. This permits calculation of the radiation protection factors for the locations inside the vehicle. The contaminated vehicle protection factors varied between 3.3 and 6.9, depending on position within the vehicle, averaging 5.7. These values are consistent with previous measurements made at DREO. These results were also used to test DREO's ability to use data from its Source-in-a-Tube simulator to predict dose rates inside a non-uniformly contaminated vehicle. These measurements not only provide a thorough characterization of the radiation protection offered by the Grizzly, but also validate the use of the SIT simulator as a tool for evaluating radiation protection of vehicles.
