PRG supplied DOS/NP with mini rad-D radiation detection pagers. In addition to supplying the equipment, PRG was asked to create comprehensive training materials to be delivered with the equipment. As a result, PRG designed and developed training materials on the operation and maintenance of the detectors for distribution to border security officers and inspectors in Azerbaijan who will utilize the detectors in their daily security operations. After developing the training guide PRG had it, as well as the detector operating manuals, translated from English into the Russian and Azeri Languages.
