Abstract
Spectrometers must have the ability to identify Special Nuclear Materials (SNM) that may be present, even if hidden and masked by naturally occurring radioactive materials) NORM). Prediction of the g spectrum is vital to recognize the different combinations, as the shape is determined by absorption and geometrical factors . A program was developed, which utilizes geometric equations and detector characteristics data to produce the synthetic gamma-ray spectra. The program is a convenient tool to check the compliance of the spectrometers to the requirements concerning the identification of different isotopes combinations.
