The RDS-100V military radiac set is designed to detect and measure dose rate and accumulated dose derived from gamma-ray and beta radiation. The radiac set may be carried by an operator, or installed in a vehicular mount (optional). This simple to operate, rugged and lightweight equipment combines unequaled performance and reliability. It includes the unique Time-to-Count technique providing outstanding linearity over the entire dynamic range of the instrument – no compensation for high levels is necessary. Features such as wide dynamic ranges for dose and dose rate and pre-settable alarms make this instrument clearly the instrument of choice for the foot soldier.
The RDS-100V system also lends itself to use in military land vehicles and helicopters and easily fits within the space-constrained interiors of aircraft and fighting vehicles (see circled RDS-100V unit at left). With the probe mounted internally, the attenuator button provides the capability for indication of the outside dose rate by estimating the self shielding factor caused by the vehicle. Its detection probe may be mounted outside the land vehicle or helicopter for direct external radiation assessment. With the optional RDS-100V Vehicle Mount, the radiac is capable of operating on vehicular or aircraft power.
