ARMAS Flight Instrumentation

SET provides instrumentation for measuring the radiation environment on a variety of aerospace vehicles, including aircraft, UAVs, high altitude balloons, suborbital vehicles, cubesats, and the International Space Station. Each generation of ARMAS Flight Module (FM) is numbered and we are currently in the 9th generation design and build for ARMAS FMs. The specification sheets for many of the instruments are provided below.
