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 SDKs from our SDK directory that matched your search term. Though your definition of an SDK may differ, in our world, we define SDKs as platform- specific tools for consuming existing APIs of the sort we list in our API directory. For example, the Ruby SDK for consuming the Twitter Ads API. If you think an SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
