Portal monitors are detection systems used to monitor individuals, vehicles, and cargo for radioactive contamination in order to prevent contamination transfer to clean areas. These monitors are used to eliminate the need for individual searches using handheld monitors.
The Focus Group Report (2008), Market Survey Report (2008), and Assessment Report on Portable Radiation Portal Monitors (2008) are limited distribution documents, and are available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
