Since their discoveries different types of radiation detectors, sensitive to various components of cosmic rays (CRs) have been developed to monitor and study their variations. As part of the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) space research program and radiation detector laboratory activities, a CARPET detector was installed at KACST central Saudi Arabia (Riyadh; lat. 24 43; long. 46 40; alt. 613 m; Rc =14.4 GV) for monitoring and exploring the variations of the CRs and their possible correlations with environment variables such as thunderstorms. The detector was designed and built by the Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (LPI, Moscow, Russia) within an international scientific cooperation between the LPI and the KACST and has been in operation since April 2016. In this paper, the technical aspects of this detector will be briefly discussed. Preliminary results obtained from this detector will be presented and discussed.
