CD V-777A RADEF Monitoring Support Set
The CD V-777A "RADEF Monitoring Support Set" was a supplemental
set to the CD V-777 set. This set was to supplement the CD V-777 set for
use in radiological monitoring stations by adding the CD
V-717 remote sensor survery meter. The CD V-717 would be used by placing
the remote sensor outside the shelter area so outside radiation levels could
be monitored without going outside the shelter. Chapter VIII, Annex 1 of
DOD, OCD publication SM-11.23.2 "Radiological Defense, Planning and
Operations Guide" revised March 1967 lists the contents for a CD V-777A
kit as seen above, 1-CD V-700 Geiger counter, 1-CD V-715 Survey Meter, 1-CD
V-717 Survey Meter, remote sensor, 3-CD V-742 Dosimeters and 1-CD V-750
Dosimeter Charger. The FEMA publication CPG 2-2 dated Sept 1991 also has
a kit contents list for the CD V-777A it's the same as the above list but
with 6-CD V-742 Dosimeters instead of 3.

Operations Guide, Chapter VIII Annex 2, Page 8-17
The supplementary set of radiological defense equipment is made available
RADEF MONITORING SUPPORT SET (CD V-777A)
FOR OPERATIONAL MONITORING STATIONS
to selected operational
monitoring stations to accomplish the following
1. Allow on-station measurement of high radiation dose rates with minimal
exposure to monitors.
2. Increase the availability of survey meters to those stations
which are assigned extensive mobile monitoring responsibil-
ities, or ground support or aerial monitoring operations.
This annex contains information on requirements and procedures relating to
the availability of the Radef Monitoring Support Set for the operational moni-
(Kit contents table omitted because of listing above....)
To obtain a Radef Monitoring Support Set, CD V-777A, the requirements for
obtaining the issue of a Radiological Defense Operational Set, CD V-777,
must be met, and in addition:
1. At least four trained radiological monitors for each monitoring
station are required.
2. The monitoring station must have a major assignment for mobile
monitoring of must be located at or near an airport to support
aerial monitoring operations.
3. The monitoring station has a minimum PF of 40 and plans have been
established to increase this protection factor to 100 or better.
Annex 1 of this chapter, page 8-9, will assist in the evaluation
of the protection factor of a facility in those cases where the
building has not been surveyed previously under the National
Shelter Survey Program.
4. The CD V-717 instrument has not been, and will not be requested
for the station.
