The Low Dose Rate Broad Beam Total Ionizing Dose facility features turn-key testing at dose rates from 0.01 to 0.10 rad.

VPT Inc. has added a comprehensive radiation laboratory and test services facility to its Chelmsford, MA, facility. The 5000-ft┬▓ VPT Rad facility, which will serve the radiation and related test needs of aerospace electronics manufacturers, provides specialized environments and equipment for evaluating electronics used in applications where ionizing radiation can degrade device performance. VPT Rad offers turn-key solutions at both High Dose Rate with its TID (Total Ionizing Dose) GC-200 irradiator and Low Dose Rate Broad Beam TID irradiation for Enhanced Low Dose Rate Sensitivity analysis. The VPT Rad facility meets the requirements of MIL-STD-750 and MIL-STD-883; and has approved Source Suitability from the Defense Logistics Agency. The facility also services radiation test needs for customers and programs outside the U.S. using European Space Components Coordination (ESCC) 22900 compliant test methods.
