From "dirty bombs dirty bombA mix of explosives, such as dynamite, with radioactive powder or pellets. Also known as a radiological dispersal device (RDD). Radiological Dispersal Devices Defined The Department of Defense (DOD) defines an RDD as, "any device, including any weapon or equipment, other than a nuclear explosive device, specifically designed to employ radioactive material by disseminating it to cause destruction, damage, or injury by means of the radiation produced by the decay of such.

    A far lower-tech radiological weapon than those discussed above is a "dirty bomb" / Radiological dispersal device,which refers to a conventional explosive bomb with a radiological side effect due to strapping radiation sources to it, is a very inefficient way to spread radiation, and all such "weapons" have problems that render them likely.   However, the dangers of Radiological Dispersal Devices (RDDs) remain the least understated dangers in the country just behind agro-terrorism. Additionally, a Radiological Dispersal Device combines conventional explosive device, for example, a bomb with some radioactive materials (Evans-Nguyen et al., ).

An RDD combines a conventional explosive device—such as a bomb—with radioactive material. A radiological dispersal device (RDD) is any device that spreads radioactive material in the environment with malicious intent. The archetypal RDD, also called a dirty bomb, is the combination of a conventional explosive device with radioactive materials that can be obtained from industrial, commercial, medical and research applications [1], [2].Cited by: 9.

A dirty bomb or radiological dispersal device is a speculative radiological weapon that combines radioactive material with conventional explosives. The purpose of the weapon is to contaminate the area around the dispersal agent/conventional explosion with radioactive material, serving primarily as an area denial device against civilians.
