The world is naturally radioactive place, and every person is exposed to between 2-3mSv (millisieverts) every year.
The radiation sources may reduce costs by replacing current, expensive facilities.
Five years after the Iron Dome battery was installed, kibbutz residents were told by the IDF not to approach the area surrounding the facility, due to strong radiation emitted by the battery.
Wildfires break out in the area often, but the fires currently blazing after a warm and dry winter are much larger than the usual blazes
StemRad is behind the AstroRad vest, offering personal protective equipment for astronauts to wear beyond low Earth orbit, mitigating space radiation exposure outside the Earth’s magnetosphere.
“We believe that this outcome is an important contribution to protect the armed and medical forces which may need to enter contaminated areas,” Chief Executive Officer Yaky Yanay said.
StemRad has created innovative solutions to protect individuals from radiation exposure.
