The first hours elapsed after a radiological incident are critical to take appropriate actions to protect the population and to assess its impact on the environment. The development of mobile laboratories equipped with different radiation detectors, with robust communication systems, and with a highly autonomous uninterruptible power supply constitutes the spearhead of modern radiological warning networks. Their main function is to provide additional radiation information with acceptable accuracy in the shortest possible time. This paper describes our development of a mobile laboratory and the demonstration of its usefulness in various emergency drills conducted in the vicinity of a nuclear power plant.
