Radiation detection backpacks are designed to covertly detect the presence of radioactive material. Responders use these systems to find lost radioactive sources and to find maliciously introduced radioactive sources.
The Focus Group Report, Market Survey Report, and Assessment Report on Radiation Detection Backpacks are limited distribution documents, and are available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
