The article describes various approaches for space radiation track measurement using CR-39™ detector (Tastrak). The results of comparing different methods for track scanning and data processing are presented. Basic algorithms for determination of track parameters are described. Every approach involves individual set of measured track parameters. For two sets, track scanning is sufficient in the plane of detector surface (2-D measurement), third set requires scanning in the additional projection (3-D measurement). An experimental comparison of considered techniques was made with the use of accelerated heavy ions Ar, Fe and Kr.
