This series of data was created based on measurement results of air dose rate of the unmanned helicopter monitoring in the Distribution Survey of Radioactive Substances conducted by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, and the Secretariat of the Nuclear Regulation Authority from FY 2012 to FY 2015.

Results of Air Dose Rate of the Unmanned Helicopter Monitoring within the 5 km Radius from the Fukushima Dai-ichi NPP ( from September 2015 to October 2015 )
  1. This data was created based on results of air dose rates measured by an unmanned helicopter within the 5 km radius of the Fukushima Dai-ichi NPP from September 2015 to October 2015 in the FY2015 Distribution Survey by NRA.
  2. Their flight altitude was 80 m above ground. The air dose rate at the ground surface is the averaged value of gamma dose in an 80 m diameter circle (varies by flight altitude) below the aircraft.
  3. The width of the track of the unmanned helicopter was 80 m.
  4. The flight velocity was approximately 8 m/s (28.8 km/h).
  5. Using a LaBr3(Ce) (lanthanum bromide) scintillation detector (ø 1.5" × 1.5" × 3 pcs), gamma ray from the ground and the direct and scattered gamma ray radiation from the NPP (counting rate), as well as energy spectra were measured every one second.
  6. Regarding air dose rates, a test site was established in the restricted area where the air dose rate barely varied in order to determine the conversion factor from gamma ray counting rate measured in the air to air dose rate on the ground. First, using a NaI scintillator, air dose rates at a height of 1 m above the ground within 100 m radius from the test site were measured and the averaged air dose rate was derived. Second, the gamma ray counting rate was obtained from a 80 m above the ground hovering unmanned helicopter at the test site, in addition the conversion factor CD between counting rate and air dose rate at a height of 1 m above the ground (cps/(μSv/h)) was obtained. Subsequently, the altitude correction function was derived from the gamma ray counting rates at every 10 m for a range between 10 m and 100 m above the ground from the hovering unmanned helicopter and then the attenuation coefficient by the air was calculated.Finally, air dose rates were obtained using the gamma ray counting rates which were obtained by an actual flight and by using the conversion factor CD and attenuation coefficient by the air above. (Note) The altitude of the unmanned helicopter was derived by subtracting the altitude in the Digital Elevation Model (10 m grids) issued by the Geospatial Information Authority of Japan from the GPS altitude of the unmanned helicopter.
  7. Regarding air dose rates, dead time was corrected because 1.8 - 2.0μs dead time had been found in the radiation measurement system of the unmanned helicopter when evaluated by irradiation equipment.
