Abstract
Neutron and gamma-ray tissue kerma and scalar spectrum measurements have been made at the Army Pulse Radiation Division (APRD), Aberdeen Proving Ground, to 1.6 km in air-over-ground geometry from a fission source and are compared to state-of-the-art transport calculations. Measurements have been made by the APRD staff as well as German, Canadian, and French scientists. A variety of integral detectors and differential spectrometers were used. Agreement among the various groups ranges from good to excellent. Calculations have been made in support of shielding programs and in connection with the Hiroshima-Nagasaki dose reevaluation effort.
