RSL Aerial Measuring Program Helps Keep Las Vegas Safe with New Year's Eve Flights 

The Nevada National Security Site’s Aerial Measuring System (AMS) response team from the Remote Sensing Laboratory (RSL)-Nellis flew over the Las Vegas Strip and other areas on New Year’s Eve day to get a characterization baseline for radiological detection. Early that Dec. 31 morning, the team arrived at Nellis Air Force Base in support of a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) Preventive Radiological Nuclear Detection mission. Their assignment: collect and map aerial radiation data over the Las Vegas Strip. This baseline data enabled the LVMPD to rapidly and confidently detect, identify and mitigate any potential radiological threat occurring at a later time. ​
