DOSMAX Report Summary

Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C
Country: France

Dose assessment

In-flight dose rates and LET spectra for different airlines and flights at both supersonic and subsonic altitudes during the period of solar maximum activity were determined.

Thousands hours of measurements aboard aircraft were performed, including measurements during a GLE on April 2001.

The comparisons of dose equivalent measured and calculated by theoretical models were obtained.

Improvements of models have been realised, especially those concerning GLEs.
