Abstract: On the exterior training site "Complex of engineering and technical means of the physical protection system" of the Institute for Nuclear Research, NAS of Ukraine there was carried out experimental research on the possibility of applying a hypergeometric distribution to verify the performance testing of technical means of the physical protection system of radiation-hazardous facilities. There were considered two cases concerning the status of technical means of the physical protection system, namely: the case 1 disabled sensors are missing in aggregate and the case 2 there is no more than one disabled sensor in aggregate. There are presented the main and the alternative hypothesis for the proposed cases. The use of cases 1 and 2 demonstrates significant savings in time resources and indicates the acceptability of using this methodology for performance testing of technical means of physical protection system of radioactive materials and associated facilities.

Keywords: physical protection system, performance, technical means, hypergeometric distribution.
