NASA sends ADVACAM’s detectors to space station
As NASA recently announced the results of our development “The Miniaturized Particle Telescope” was approved for the next mission to International Space Station (ISS) from March to September 2017 (see original NASA announcement here). This device will monitor cosmic radiation (solar, galactic …) in the international space station. Our particle tracker (telescope) provides very complex 3D image data for each radiation particle passing through it. Such data can be used, e.g., for more precise dose calculation for astronauts or to monitor the so-called space weather.
NASA considers our device as a cost-effective “Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) product”. We are proud that the technology and quality level of our “Off-the-Shelf” products satisfies even very high requirements needed for applications in space!
