Abstract

General Atomics (GA) is currently under turn-key contract to construct a Stationary Neutron Radiography System (SNRS) at McClellan Air Force Base, Sacramento, California. The SNRS is a custom designed neutron radiography inspection system, see Fig. 1, which utilizes a 1000 kW TRIGA reactor as a neutron source to inspect aircraft components for corrosion and other defects. The SNRS project is made up of four major systems: the Shielding and Containment System (SCS); TRIGA Reactor System (TRS); Neutron Beam System (NBS); and Component Inspection System (CIS). The SNRS project is currently close to completion with the construction phase completed and the equipment installation and testing phase well underway.
