ARMAS iOS App Support

The ARMAS iOS app supports six user groups with radiation exposure information. These groups include vehicle owners with a FM7, pilots and crew, business flyers and high mileage frequent flyers, the public interested in space weather that is related to radiation exposure, and the curious user not familiar with the radiation environment in an aircraft or space vehicle. The ARMAS iOS app is available at the Apple App store as a free download. Upgrades can be obtained within the app itself.

The Automated Radiation Measurements for Aerospace Safety (ARMAS) program has been developed with NASA funding. It provides accurate, real-time radiation monitoring along with radiation and space weather awareness for the global airspace up to 100 km altitude.

The ARMAS app is part of this program and does two tasks:
– it pairs with and controls the 7th generation ARMAS Flight Module (FM7) radiation detector (purchased separately) to provide the highest quality, real-time dose and dose rates in aircraft and suborbital vehicles. It is sensitive to radiation from all sources including heavy ions, alphas, protons, neutrons, electrons, and gamma-rays.
– it provides radiation awareness by hosting real-time space weather data coming from dozens of ground- and space-based systems that report all the information relevant to radiation processes without requiring a purchase of the FM7.

ARMAS is the ‘gold-standard’ in real-time radiation monitoring and awareness used by professional pilots, business travelers, and commercial space tourists. The ARMAS program is developed and operated by Space Environment Technologies, which specializes in space weather as an official NOAA “Weather Ready Nation” Ambassador.
