This thesis discusses the impact and benefits of installing a 1.5 MeV flash X-ray machine at the Naval Postgraduate School. It reviews the specifications and applications of the 100 MeV linear accelerator currently in operation at NPS and compares it with the performance of the proposed equipment. Estimates of radiation production and area dosages from the flash X-ray machine, as well as proposals for equipment location and shielding design, are presented. Laboratory requirements for electrical power, space, radiation monitoring, equipment interlocks and safety awareness, as well as federal regulation application to and installation of this type, are considered. Finally, research and thesis opportunities through the improved and unique capabilities of the flash X-ray machine are presented, along with some suggestions for proposed experiments and applications
