OTB Payload Profile: RadMon to Measure Radiation in Low-Earth Orbit

The concept behind Surrey’s Orbital Test Bed (OTB) missions is to cost-effectively space-qualify new equipment and generate in-orbit data that can’t be collected by any other means. While the first OTB satellite will host payloads for several clients, the spacecraft will also carry experimental components built and operated by Surrey to help us better plan future missions and evolve our product.

As the first in a series of blogs describing OTB’s payloads, we showcase the radiation sensor, or RadMon.
