RML-RAD space radiation monitor is a low-resource and high-performance instrumentation designed
for space weather real-time monitoring purposes in accordance with related requirements of the
European Space Agency (ESA) utilising a silicon detector telescope system, called RADTEL. The instrument is capable to measure the energy distribution and flux dynamics of protons, electrons and heavy ions. The instrument is planned to be demonstrated on a dedicated SmallSat mission within the
RADLITE is the miniaturised version of the RML-RAD space radiation monitor designed especially for
CubeSat missions by fitting into 0.6-1.0U CubeSat volume and requiring extremely low resources
regarding power, mass and data downlink. The instrument utilises one or even two perpendicular located silicon detector telescope system(s) to measure the energy distribution and flux dynamics of protons, electrons and heavy ions. The instrument technology was successfully operated for in-orbit
demonstration on board the RADCUBE 3U CubeSat mission.
RML-MAG space magnetometer is a low-resource magnetometer designed for space weather real-time monitoring purposes in accordance with related requirements of the European Space Agency (ESA) utilising miniaturised fluxgate sensors provided by Bartington Ltd. One sensor is integrated inside the electronics box, while two additional external sensors can be attached via cabling to be hosted on any boom systems provided by the Customer. The instrument is planned to be demonstrated on a dedicated SmallSat mission within the upcoming years.
SPACE-GM is a highly reliable and robust (cosmic) radiation monitoring system utilising Geiger-Müller
counters to be used in extreme environments or applications, like stratospheric balloons, sounding
rockets or drone systems. The system is capable to measure the direction dependence of the cosmic radiation, locate radiation sources, provide the spatial and temporal distribution and dependence of the count rates. Thus, related dose rates can be estimated. The system was already flown on BEXUS-14 stratospheric balloon, on REXUS-17 sounding rocket and used also for drone systems.
Complex Space Weather Monitor System
RADMAG-L instrument concept relies on the Distributed Space Weather Sensor System (D3S) concept of ESA utilizing hosted secondary payloads for operational space weather monitoring. The instrument is providing the combination of a radiation monitor (using a silicon detector telescope system) with a magnetometer. In addition, the system is fully scalable, thus additional interface electronics and intelligence can be added for customisation, thus an external boom system can be controlled, and additional power supply and digital processing capabilities can be added to cover a wide range of hosting interface requirements. By combining space radiation and magnetic field measurements the most relevant space weather products could be handled coherently within one single instrument package capable to host onboard as many platforms as it is possible. The development is founded by the European Space Agency (ESA).
