Ionizing Radiation and Radioactivity

AVIDOS - Public Mode

The PUBLIC mode is intended for users who need a quick estimate of the cosmic radiation exposure for a particular flight without taking all the technical details into account. It is ideal for people who are waiting to board and just want to know what the radiation exposure is for the upcoming flight.


To get the assessed radiation dose, simply enter:

  • date and time of the flight,
  • departure airport,
  • and destination airport.

The date and time can be easily entered via a pop-up window. Users can search for their airport by name, ICAO or IATA code or simply list all airports in the country by entering the country name. 
The results are displayed graphically and compared to the radiation dose you would receive from the natural environment if you stayed on the ground instead of flying.
