Radiation testing example


Our Story

Hello, I’m Matthew, I come from the fast-paced world of startups where schedule is everything. But when I became involved with radiation testing and analysis for space applications, I was taken aback by how rigid and slow the industry was. I saw that many businesses struggled with the same issues, so I decided it was time for a change. That's how I founded Space Radiation Services—to offer flexible solutions that balances cost, schedule, and risk, tailored to each customer's unique requirements.


Space Radiation Services has tackled a wide range of projects, from heritage programs that strictly follow MIL and ECSS standards to innovative new space endeavors where we've had to chart an entirely new course. Regardless of the obstacle, the commitment remains—delivering the radiation testing and analysis that fit our customers needs and help them succeed.
