Radiation Detector Pressure Vessel

This is the pressure vessel that encloses NEUDOSE's Tissue Equivalent Proportional Counter (TEPC), a major component of our on-board radiation detector. In order for the TEPC to appropriately measure the response of human tissue from radiation dose, the pressure must be controlled. This aluminum capsule maintains the pressure of the propane gas filled TEPC between 20-30 Torr for the duration of the entire mission.
