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.
