Investigation of using a long-life electronic personal dosimeter for monitoring aviation doses of frequent flyers

Yasuda, Hiroshi*; Yajima, Kazuaki*; Sato, Tatsuhiko

We have investigated an application of a recently developed electronic personal dosimeter (D-Shuttle) for aviation dosimetry. As results of measurements in four long-haul flights between Japan and Germany, the D-Shuttle indicated values were in the range of 25 to 30% of the total H$$^{*}$$(10) values estimated by a route-dose calculations program JISCARD EX. Though we need more measurements and analyses under different flight conditions to conclude, according to these results obtained so far, it would be possible to perform monitoring of the annual aviation doses of frequent flyers by using D-Shuttle on an individual basis.
