Sanderson, D.C.W., Tyler, A.N., and Cairns, K.J. (1991) Radiometric Flight Trials in the Forth Estuary on 7/8/91. Technical Report. Scottish Universities Research and Reactor Centre, Glasgow, UK.
A brief radiometric flight trial was undertaken on 7th August 1991, essentially to prove a new gamma spectrometry installation. A twin engined helicopter operated by Dollar helicopters out of Cumbernauld Airport was used for the exercise. The new equipment under test comprised (i) a spectrometer mounting plate manufactured by Dollar to take SURRC equipment for rapid deployment, (ii) a 19" rack mounted spectrometer incorporating proven SURRC components, but with additional duplex inverter based UPS, and (iii) a Navstar XR4 GPS system with aircraft patch type aerial. The flight trial was conducted in the Forth Estuary area focussing on three small sites of incidental interest.
