Concept, purpose and functionality of the highly miniaturized radiation monitor (MIRAM) will be presented. The monitor is a specialized device with purpose of radiation field monitoring-characterization and online composition recognition with purpose to be deployed and operated on the earth orbit satellites. The device is currently being developed for ESA-ESTEC institution. Design has to meet a set of strict requirements on low power consumption, small weight, low-particle recognition, long term stability and precision of measurements and also radiation hardness. The device is based on hybrid semiconductor pixel detector Timepix3 (256x256 pixels with TOT and TOA information) with single particle recognition capability accompanied with single pad diodes of different materials to optimize energy range resolution.
