Miniature Active Space Radiation Dosimeter, Phase II

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Miniature Active Space Radiation Dosimeter, Phase II
Space Micro will extend our Phase I R&D to develop a family of miniature, active space radiation dosimeters/particle counters, with a focus on biological/manned dose levels. A single board design will support both manned level and space electronics level dosimetry needs. This is enabled by the density and features of commercial high density silicon semiconductor memory devices, coupled with innovative patented programming algorithms. We plan to augment this core dosimeter technology with other emerging novel miniature radiation detectors to enhance single particle detection, including heavy ions and secondary neutrons. A flight dosimeter will be delivered to NASA for flight demo on ISS or other platform. Space Micro will then commercialize for both NASA markets (manned and electronics grade levels) with a standard product offering through our established marketing channels. More »
