Abstract
In an effort to improve upon basic gamma radiation survey meters, DRDC Ottawa and Bubble Technology Industries developed a gamma radiation survey meter that adds a directional element to facilitate source localization. This Directional Survey Meter (which is also being called the Rad Compass) is based on the directional sensor of the previously-developed Directional Gamma Ray Probe, which was also co-developed by DRDC Ottawa and BTI. DRDC Ottawa carried out detailed testing of the prototype device based on a subset of the ANSI 42.33 gamma survey meter testing specifications. This report describes the testing carried out on the prototype device by DRDC Ottawa.
