Abstract
Following the recommendations from DRDC Ottawa TM 2009-274 An evaluation of the Probabilistic Risk Assessment Tool for radiological dispersal devices[1], some identified problems were investigated and fixed in the Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA) Tool for Radiological Dispersal Devices (RDDs). This includes issues related to the calculation of feasibility and consequence variables, but also coding problems which affected the behaviour of the software. Prior to these improvements, the code of the PRA Tool was overhauled in order to allow the software to work properly with currently available dependencies and also to increase its speed and accuracy.
