Automated Radiation Measurements for Aerospace Safety - High-altitude (ARMAS-Hi) (ARMAS-Hi)

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Automated Radiation Measurements for Aerospace Safety - High-altitude (ARMAS-Hi)
This project will be the first demonstration of a real-time Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS)-based technology for ionizing-radiation dose assessment at high altitudes with a global operational application. Radiation monitoring capabilities at high altitudes are important for human space exploration by helping specify the radiation environment consistency from the surface to Low Earth Orbit (LEO), i.e., a space tourism safety concern. This work will result in a better understanding of the radiation environment due to Galactic Cosmic Rays (GCRs) and solar proton events (SPEs) for altitudes transitioning into space.
