Workshops on Radiation Monitoring for the International Space Station

The Workshop on Radiation Monitoring for the International Space Station is an annual meeting to discuss the scientific definition of an adequate radiation monitoring package and its use by the scientific community on the ISS. Types of instruments and research topics need to be defined in order to optimise the radiation safety of the ISS crew.

For further questions please contact the chairman of the workshop Dr. Günther Reitz (guenther.reitz@dlr.de) at the German Aerospace Center (DLR).

The table below lists the workshops held so far, with links to the proceedings.

The 21th Workshop will take place at ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands, on 6–8 September 2016.

After very fruitful discussions a set of recommendations (available from the left hand menu) for future research and instrument development was issued and distributed to all relevant bodies.

Intercalibration campaigns

During the fourth WRMISS in Farnborough, all participants agreed that it is necessary to establish a process for calibration and intercomparison of space radiation dosimeters. A group (Günther Reitz, Rudolf Beaujean, Tom Borak, Kazunobu Fujitaka and Jack Miller) was established to coordinate the calibrations at the following facilities:
  • Intercomparison at HIMAC
  • CERN-EC Reference Field (CERF)
  • Proton facility at Loma Linda
  • Brookhaven beams at AGS and BAF
More information on the calibration campaigns is available at the ICCHIBAN website.
