Abstract : The Skylab II Command Module was equipped with passive dosimeter located at five selected stations within the spacecraft to monitor radiation levels accumulated during the 28 day space mission. The passive sensors consisted of an array of thermoluminescent devices (TLD) ionization chambers, and activation foils. The thermoluminescent units chosen were the EG and G Corporation evaculated glass container type. Both lithium fluoride and manganese activated calcium fluoride were selected for use in the Skylab missions. (Modified author abstract)
