3-Dimensional Space Dosimetry Telescope

RADLite was designed and manufactured in Hungary to measure of space weather-related space radiation data products as defined by the European Space Agency (ESA). This Hungarian domestic product development forms the world’s first complete and comprehensive image of the radiation environment surrounding the Earth.

The CROSS network (Cosmic Radiation Observatory Satellite System) designed by Hungarian researchers allows the participants of national and international space activities to ensure the safety of instruments and personnel sent into space more efficiently. It also allows academic researchers a more thorough examination of the Earth’s radiation environment and its behaviour. This unmatched national development proves that Hungarian innovation is amongst the world’s leaders even in the field of space activities.

The cornerstone of the new measuring technology is the RADCUBE mission in which RADlite plays a major part.

Geiger-Müller Counter System for Sounding Rocket Research

The Space-GM project was an experiment designed by REMRED Ltd. that aimed to design and develop a GM counter system for sounding rockets and to quantify the cosmic radiation up to the maximum altitude of the REXUS rocket. Our team measured the direction dependence of the cosmic radiation and the altitude dependence of the count rates. Thus enabling an estimate of the dose rate altitude dependence based on the GM calibrations. Apart from future space industry applications, the technology can benefit Nuclear Environment Monitoring efforts too, identifying contaminated areas, localising radiation sources, protecting humans from radiation and operating onboard drones for radiation mapping.

Advanced Cosmic Radiation and Dosimetric Measurement System for Stratospheric Balloon and Aeroplane Research

Due to significant spatial and temporal changes in the cosmic radiation field, radiation measurements with advanced dosimetric instruments onboard spacecraft, aircraft and balloons are very important.

The primary scientific goal of the TECHDOSE project was to give a comprehensive assessment of the cosmic radiation field at high altitude, and the main technical goal was to develop a balloon technology platform for advanced cosmic radiation and dosimetry measurements. To fulfil the objectives of this experiment, several different dosimeter REMRED Ltd. systems were utilised, including TRITEL 3D detector telescope, Geiger-Müller (GM) counters, PILLE and other contributing technologies. The insights collected and the system developed can easily become the foundation of future projects of relevant experiments.
