The RadMap Telescope is a TUM-led NASA experiment that will monitor the radiation background on the International

Space Station (ISS). The instrument incorporates several state-of-the-art particle detection technologies and has a

scintillating fiber tracker at its core. As part of this thesis, an existing prototype tracker shall be analyzed and a new,

modular stacking concept shall be developed, constructed, and tested.

Your Tasks

Depending on the time available for your thesis, your work could include some or all of the following tasks:

Familiarize yourself with the working principle of the fiber tracker and associated hardware.

Learn how to use 3D CAD software (SolidWorks) and 3D printers.

Analyze the current tracker prototype from a hardware perspective and identify weak spots in the design.

Support testing of the existing prototype using radioactive sources.

Develop a new, modular stacking concept whose parts can be manufactured on a 3D printer.

Build, evaluate, and test prototype modules.

Support the development, construction, and test of the final flight model.

Prerequisites

Experience in 3D CAD design and/or manufacturing techniques is helpful, but not required. You should enjoy working in

the lab and interacting with a young and dynamic team.
