Does anyone know the average keV used for the screening? I've been in the Middle East and am catching up on the latest TSA re-evaluation, and whether the survey meter used to perform the measurements is actually adequate. There have been questions raised whether or not the N43.17 standard is being met with the smaller ion chamber used for the measurement compared to what the standard states, I.e., 1500 cc detector.

Any information would be appreciated.
