The LORAD 160 kVp puts out 14 Rem per minute at 50 centimeters. This is fairly low energy industrial use, seen typically in the aircraft industry. The United States Navy and airforce have been using this model for a number of years.

Does anyone out there have an idea of what the range of output is for these sort of devices? I'm interested in knowing about how many R/min @ 1 meter could be expected from commercially available models.  I've seen some that spec out at 5 R/min at 1 meter.  Are there models (portable) with higher outputs?
