Absorbed dose rate in silicon (top panel) and the 3D representation of the flight (bottom panel). The colored region above 20 km is the notional hazards of the incoming particle environment at the top of the atmosphere, where red indicates greater hazard (more particle flux) at the high latitudes while green represents lower hazard (lower particle flux and lower radiation exposure) in the equatorial region. 

Body
Level 2 absorbed radiation dose rates in silicon from the Automated Radiation Measurements for Aerospace Safety (ARMAS) system.
