CROSS systemA Hungarian domestic development can form the world’s first complete and comprehensive image of the radiation environment surrounding the Earth. The CROSS system (Cosmic Radiation Observatory Satellite System) designed by Hungarian researchers allows the participants of national and international space activities to ensure the safety of instruments and personnel sent into space far more accurately and effectively than ever. It allows academic researchers a more thorough examination of the Earth’s radiation environment and its behaviour. The Ministry of National Development, the Hungarian Space Office, the Centre for Energy Research, Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA EK) and C3S LLC. presented the details of the project within the framework of a joint press conference on the 19th of May 2016 in Budapest.
