Device for monitoring radiation situation on spacecraft

Abstract

The results of experiments carried out both in our country and abroad in 1990s, 2000s to study the impact of radiation on the electronic equipment of space vehicles are presented in the paper. General characteristics of factors of space are given as well as characteristics of ionizing radiation. A concept of constructing a device for the control of the impact of space ionizing radiation on individual elements of spacecraft onboard equipment is proposed. Failures caused by space ionizing radiation in integrated chips are discussed, their classification is given. Radiation monitors such as Radiation Environment Monitor, Standard Radiation Environment Monitor, Cosmic-Ray Effects and Dosimetry, Prisma-3, STEP-F, MIS-dosimeters (RadFET) used in the experiments are discussed. Characteristics of radiation monitors, general principles of measuring characteristics of ionizing radiation are also discussed. The “DH-DMS” complex of equipment for carrying out an experiment to study the impact of space environment factors on samples of optical elements, coverings and electronic components is presented. The “ERI IP” module intended for carrying out an experiment to study the impact of space ionizing radiation on electronic equipment of foreign production is described (commercial off-the-shelf – COTS). Chips of Atmega168PA, STM32F303, AM29F010b, AM24C32 are tested In the experiment.
