Based on a radiation field produced by an electrostatic accelerator, a radiation survey meter test and calibration facility has been designed and characterized in terms of air kerma and ambient dose equivalent. The electron beam impinges a tantalum target to produce X-rays. The spectrum has been measured and calculated. Traceability to the International System of units is achieved by means of a calibration with a primary dosimeter for air kerma.
