Abstract : A second generation dosimeter is being designed to fulfill the need for accurate radiation dose measurements. Two identical dosimeters, a flight unit and a backup unit, are to be fabricated, tested and calibrated. The flight dosimeter is to be integrated into the payload of the Advanced Photovoltaic Electronic Experiment (APEX) satellite, as part of the Photovoltaic Array Space Power Plus Diagnostics (PASP Plus) experiment.
