Application of remote sensing methods using a spectrometric collimated system allows obtaining information about features of a formation of radiation fields in contaminated premises. This information helps in a preparation of a phased plan for dismantling of contaminated equipment. When the survey of technological premises of the research reactor at the Russian Research Centre “Kurchatov institute” was conducted the remote controlled collimated spectrometric system was used [1]. With its help the scanning of surveyed premises were carried out. As a result of this work, the distribution pattern of radionuclides activity was restored. The simulation of decontamination works was carried out and maps of the distribution of activity and dose rate for surveyed premises were plotted and superimposed on its photo for situations before and after decontamination. The use of obtained results will allow significantly reduce radiation dose for staff at work on dismantling.
