Analysis of the Exposure Levels and Potential Biologic Effects of the PAVE PAWS Radar System
National Academies, 1979 - Radar - 102 pages
The Panel on the Extent of Radiation from the PAVE PAWS Radar System was charged to examine the extent of radiation and the exposure of the public to radiation from the PAVE PAWS system. In carrying out this task, the Panel has considered the characteristics of the PAVE PAWS radiation as related to public exposure and compared the possible exposure to existing ambient radiofrequency radiation on Cape Cod and in other locations in the United States. To provide perspective for the assessment of possible exposure effects the Panel has also, to the extent possible, reviewed and summarized the state of knowledge concerning the biologic effects of exposure to such radiation. The Panel did not address the question of the desirability or adequacy of the anticipated exposure control procedures, nor did it make a judgment concerning the relative safety or hazard of exposure to PAVE PAWS emission.
