Abstract: As a result of the modernization of the DRG-05M dosimeter, a convenient device was obtained, which allows estimating the level of gamma- and X-ray radiation, beta-particles, and neutrons without changing the detector heads. Two devices were manufactured and a third one was prepared for metrological certification.

Keywords: radiometer, organic scintillator, pulse length from gamma, beta, and neutrons.
