The first part of this report gives an overview of the main characteristics concerning mature NDA systems. The second part evaluates the techniques that are relevant for CHANCE WP3 (alpha bearing waste measurement), in the frame of Task 3.1 “Benchmark of calorimeters and standard NDA method for characterisation of large volume waste drums”. The evaluation is performed through a study of the neutron and gamma ray signals that can escape various 200 L waste drum matrices with different source configurations, and through a comparison with the published plutonium and uranium Minimum Detectable Masses (MDM) of existing systems.
