SAVER Summary: Radiation Detection Backpacks [January 2013]   [open pdf - 659KB]

"Radiation detection backpacks are designed for executing covert searches of gamma-emitting (and in some cases neutron-emitting) radioactive materials. As implied, the unit's detector and associated electronics are contained in a backpack, allowing the operator to perform inconspicuous searches in public areas. These devices are especially useful in situations where radiation search surveys of large crowds or high-profile events are performed."
