Description

A Technical Basis Document (TBD) should provide the background information for establishment of an instrument`s operational requirements. Due to the amount and location of DOE facilities, no one set of requirements is possible. Operational requirements will vary based on the local environments and missions at each facility. Environmental conditions that can affect an instrument`s operations are ambient temperature, humidity, and radio frequency, and to a lesser extent, magnetic fields, and interfering ionizing radiations. Consideration should also be made regarding how an instrument is to be used. If an instrument will be transported around the facility, vibration and shock can cause ... continued below

Environmental conditions that can affect an instrument`s operations are ambient temperature, humidity, and radio frequency, and to a lesser extent, magnetic fields, and interfering ionizing radiations. Consideration should also be made regarding how an instrument is to be used. If an instrument will be transported around the facility, vibration and shock can cause problems if they are not addressed in the TBD. This document provides guidance for the development of a TBD. This document applies to radiation instruments used for personnel and equipment contamination monitoring, dose rate monitoring, and air monitoring.
