New UV cameras are suitable for imaging of α-contamination by fluorescence of atmospheric air the near ultraviolet (wavelength — 280 – 390 nm) region. Their parameters are: FOV for detecting in UV spectral region is 8° × 6°. The optical FOV is about 48° × 36°. DayCor SUPERB UV camera has sensitivity 3×10−18 W/cm2 enables detection and displaying corona emission as weak as 1.5 pC at distance 8 m, and capture moving targets without smearing the output image. Instruments sensitivity for alpha contamination registration in terms of minimum measurable activities (MMA) have been estimated as, 40–100 Bq/cm2 (measurement time is 3600–600 sec correspondently).
