The Aerial Measuring System (AMS) is one of the emergency response resources, or assets, administered by NNSA [National Nuclear Security Administration]. Based and operated out of Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, Nevada, AMS has additional operational capability at Andrews Air Force Base near Washington, DC. The AMS aircraft carry radiation detection systems which provide real-time measurements of extremely low levels of ground and airborne contamination. AMS can also provide detailed aerial photographs and multi-spectral imagery and analysis of an accident site.
