This document covers the basic requirements for a pocket-sized Digital Alarm Dosimeter (DAD) for use by Air Force Non-destructive Inspection (NDI) personnel. The dosimeter is required to operate under extreme temperature and humidity conditions. The instrument could be physically subjected to accidental drops from the wing of an aircraft, contact with caustic chemicals, and other hazards commonly encountered in the Air Force maintenance environment. The dosimeter shall be extremely rugged and light-weight. The dosimeter shall be capable of continuously monitoring the rate of exposure and recording the accumulated dosage. The dosimeter shall be capable of measuring X-radiation in the range of 40 Kev to 1.2 Mev. The dosimeter must accurately measure the received radiation, store the accumulated dose, and provide a digital readout on a light emitting diode (LED) display. The dosimeter must have an alarm signal which will produce an audible signal when a given dose has been accumulated and emit an audible signal that is adjustable or in direct proportion to the radiation intensity the person wearing the dosimeter is being exposed.
