Development of standalone detector systems consisting of TEPC detectors and charged particle detectors (CACS)

Development of stand alone detector systems consisting of TEPC detectors and charged particle detectors (CACS) for the dfosimetry of the radiation fields at aviation altitudes. The detectors are installed in suitcases of cabin baggage size. The flight cases are to be permanently installed on aircraft, or will be used as a mobile system, or will be equipped with a different detector (for example a neutron detector).

The results will provide new insight into the particle composition of cosmic radiation in aircrafts and the correlation to the ambient dose equivalent.

Owing to the strict legislation in Germany, the results are the basis of the radiation protection regulations for aircrew members.
