“The prototype dosimetry system to protect NICA Slow Control electronic equipment” project was started in Dubna at the beginning of 2018. Its primary purpose is to design a prototype dosimetry system for continuous monitoring of Multi-Purpose Detector (MPD) Slow Control electronic equipment which can protect it against accidental ionizing radiation caused by the NICA collider failure or its abnormal functioning. The system will be fitted out with alarming features which can inform chosen people about crossing the safe threshold of the radiation and the electronics will be possibly destroyed by the irradiation. Then the controlled switching off of the Nuclotron-based Ion Collider fAcility (NICA) Complex can be possible. The system can also be utilized for protecting the personnel working on electronic platform near the MPD against the radiation. The presentation describes the prototype system status of hardware and software after almost two years of work. There will be also presented the plans for the future.
