Task Space Radiation Measurement Technologies (Completed)
Last Published:  07/29/22 01:33:24 PM (Central)
Short Title: SR MTECH
Responsible HRP Element: Space Radiation
Collaborating Org(s):
NASA Ames Research Center (ARC)
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):

Current focus of task successfully utilizes SBIR/STTR programs to solicit and develop in-flight physical dosimetry to TRL 4 for transition to technology maturation or mission programs.  In addition, technology development directly supports NSBRI Detector Technology award via NNJ08ZSA001N announcement to monitor exposure while reducing human system requirements (mass, power, data , etc.).


On-going activities complimented by NSBRI and SBIRs support the closure of :

  • Acute-5 What are the optimal SPE alert and dosimetry technologies for EVAs?


Specific aims of the activity focus on accurately measuring the most critical spectral elements of the primary and secondary space radiation environment contributing to crew health risks while reducing human systems resource requirements (mass, volume, power, data, etc.)


Once new technologies or techniques are developed through Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 4, SRPE works with operations to support the transition of technologies into technology maturation programs and/or transition to operations.
