Standard for Radiation Data Format for Streaming in Real-Time Data from Radiation Detection Instruments to a Smartphone or Tablet

The standard specifies the format of the radiation data (gamma, neutron, beta and alpha) and some non-radiation data that is streamed in real-time from a radiation detection instrument to the receiving device. The data format specified in this standard is defined using the ASN.1 syntax specified in ISO/IEC 8824 standard. The receiving device in most cases is a smartphone or tablet located at a short distance (not exceeding 30 ft) from the instrument; however, the format may be used for streaming the data to a long distance too. The data is intended to be streamed wirelessly but this is not a requirement. The transmission protocol is not part of the standard although some general transmission rules are provided. The subsequent display, processing and analysis of the radiation data on the smartphone or the tablet are outside the scope of this standard. The standard does not address the transmission media, receipt and later transmission of data to a larger and distant network or how the data is used and processed on the smartphone or tablet. The radiation data consist mainly of raw or unprocessed data, and may include dosimetric data, device parameters and settings applicable to the display, processing or analysis of the data.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.

No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.

No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.

No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.

No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.

No Inactive-Reserved Standards
