UST company has a long-term experience with the development of dosimeters and spectrometers primarily intended for scientific purposes. Examples of its products include open-source dosimeters for primary and secondary cosmic radiation - the SPACEDOS, AIRDOS and GEODOS series, that are indeed very unique in their properties.
UST’s dosimeters are not used only for terrestrial purposes. They have already successfully participated in several space missions. SPACEDOS02 measures, for a period of a regular crew change lasting several months, aboard International Space Station (ISS). SPACEDOS01 dosimeter has been modified for mounting inside cubesats and was sent to Earth’s orbit as a part of SOCRAT-R satellite.
SPACEDOS and AIRDOS dosimeters are high-quality, durable and simply modifiable devices that can be easily customized, including specific mounting requirements, the choice of power supply, volume of the sensing element, the range of measured energies and more.
Concerning the development of the detectors, we have established a long term cooperation with the Nuclear Physics Institute of the CAS (Department of Radiation Dosimetry), in the framework of project CRREAT.
