Radiation Dosimeters for Space Applications

The NuDOS dosimeter for measuring radiation in high altitude and space applications

Teledyne e2v HiRel is adding new smaller models of radiation measurement devices for measuring Low-LET, Medium-LET and High-LET doses

Three new radiation dosimeters are now available that further broaden the Teleyne e2v range of radiation measurement devices. Aimed at high altitude aerospace applications and all space applications from GEO satellites and LEO constellations to scientific exploration, each new model occupies minimal volume and adds only 17g weight to any mission.

For many space and high altitude aerospace applications, it is of critical importance to know the amount of radiation that the platform has been subjected to. Teledyne’s Microdosimeters NuDOS001, NuDOS002 and NuDOS003 measure the Total Ionizing Dose (TID) of Low-, Medium-, and High-LET (Linear Energy Transfer) radiation, and can be polled in real-time to monitor events as they happen. Deploying a system of all three models can provide spectral information about the environment.

“Customers have fully embraced our existing dosimeters, but asked that we deliver the same functionality in a smaller package,” said Hector Rivera, GM of Integrated Solutions at Teledyne HiRel. “We delivered these new NuDOS models, each taking up a smaller volume, adding less weight, and requiring a lower supply voltage.”
