High energy galactic cosmic rays and bursts of solar energetic particles collide with gases in the atmosphere. The result is a complex mix of ionising radiation, the intensity and composition of which varies with position and time. Mathematical models of these phenomena are used to estimate the radiation exposure of aircrew and pilots, ensuring their exposures remain within acceptable limits.
The CARI-7 model was developed and is maintained by the US Federal Aviation Administration's Civil Aerospace Medical Institute. CARI-7 instantaneously calculates cosmic ray doses in the atmosphere. See here for a complete description of CARI-7.
The Route Dose API estimates radiation doses along a flight route between two airports with known ICAO or IATA codes assuming a great circle route, a constant altitude (in kilometers) and a user-defined flight duration (in hours). Dose rates are calculated using the CARI-7 model
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
