NSWCCD

Dosimeter chips are widely distributed over a territorial area. This is followed by photographing the area from above to produce a color photograph. The color photograph is compared with radiation/color calibration data for the dosimeter chips. The total radiation accumulation is determined from the calibration data. The invention is for emergency use after civil accidents, for ascertaining a threat to military personnel before entering the battlefield or for interrogating a ship at sea.
