ESA Signs Contract for Development of Highly Miniaturised Radiation Monitor

2010-02-19 15:37 by Eamonn Daly

Under an ESA Technology Research Programme contract, SSTD and IC are developing a Highly Miniaturised Radiation Monitor (HMRM) which will be developed into a commercially available off-the-shelf unit. The monitor will change the dynamics of spacecraft radiation management practices and bring a high level of radiation monitoring capability to a much wider user community. It achieves this by simultaneously providing comprehensive measurement capabilities in a single sensor:

  • particle flux
  • energy range and resolution
  • species identification
  • total dose
