Dose and linear energy transfer spectral measurements for the supersonic transport programThe purpose of the package, called the high altitude radiation instrumentation system (HARIS), is to measure the radiation hazard to supersonic transport passengers from solar and galactic cosmic rays. The HARIS includes gaseous linear energy transfer spectrometer, a tissue equivalent ionization chamber, and a geiger meuller tube. The HARIS is flown on RB-57F aircraft at 60,000 feet. Data from the HARIS are reduced to give rad and rem dose rates measured by the package during the flights. Results presented include ambient data obtained on background flights, altitude comparison data, and solar flare data.
