Abstract
In support of the Canadian Forces Nucelar Detection, Identification and Dosimetry project a usability trial of three Ionizing Radiation Detection Meter Systems (IRDMS) was conducted 18-22 June 2001 at Connaught Ranges. The system evaluated System 1: ANPDR 77 Operational System with PDR 77 Alpha Beta probes and GPs (Global Positioning System) Training System; System2: ADM 300C Operational System with ABP100 Alpha Beta probes and GPS Training system; and System 3: RAM R200 Opertaional System with PA 100M and RG12 Alpha Beta probes and GPS Training System. Twelve military personnel (Provate to Captain) determined compliance with the bid evaluation criteria. The counter-balanced study, based on a Latin square design, was divided into two assessment phases, an operational phase and a training system phase, which rotated three groups (of four participants each) concurrently through each IRDMS. Groups was trained in set-up, maintenance and operation of each bid IRDMS prior to evaluation. The operational evaluation consisted of a test/maintenance stand, an indoor/outdoor operational stand, and an indoor/outdoor training system stand. TRUNCATED
