Radi-N2 Bubble Detectors used in ongoing space research aboard the ISS

The Radi-N2 experiment aims to characterize neutron radiation in various locations of the International Space Station (ISS). As part of this experiment, bubble detectors produced by Bubble Technology Industries were deployed in the JPM1D5 area of the ISS. The dose information gathered from these detectors will be used to assess the neutron radiation exposure of astronauts onboard the ISS. For more information, please see NASA’s ISS On-Orbit Status Blog for September 6th, 2018.


From September 23-27 2018, Bubble Technology Industries will be showcasing its latest products at the CVSA Annual Conference and Exhibition in Kansas City, Missouri. Come find us at booth no. 11 to learn about how our state-of-the-art radiation detection products can be used in commercial vehicle safety applications.
