The business was founded at Harwell in 2013, originally as part of Aeroflex and then Cobham before becoming independent in 2020.
We are unique in the radiation effects market in offering services to all sectors where the exposure of equipment to ionising radiation may be encountered, including space, nuclear, medical, high-energy physics, defence and industrial applications. The history of our location speaks for our involvement in nuclear power station operations, fuel handling and decommissioning activities. The more recent transformation of the Harwell campus into the UK space cluster, including the National Satellite Test Facility, demonstrates that space is central to our business.

Radtest Ltd has knowledge and experience in the following areas:

Pre-irradiation assessments and test plans
