The Swiss Free Electron Laser is a new large-scale facility currently under construction at the Paul Scherrer Institute. Accessible areas surrounding the 720 m long accelerator tunnel, together with the pulsed time structure of the primary beam, lead to new challenges for ensuring that the radiation level in these areas remains in compliance with the legal constraints. For this purpose an online survey system based on the monitoring of the ambient dose rate arising from neutrons inside of the accelerator tunnel and opportunely calibrated to indicate the total dose rate outside of the tunnel, will be installed. The presented study provides a conceptual overview of this system, its underlying assumptions and measurements so far performed to validate its concept.
