Abstract : A study was made of the characteristics required for a satellite to evaluate the solar flare hazard to near-earth manned space missions. The most important parameters to be measured in the space radiation environment were determined, and an instrumentation package was selected from existing instruments or instruments under development. In those instances where instruments were not available, preliminary designs of recommended instruments are presented. A preliminary overall satellite system was designed and a preliminary design iteration was made on all satellite subsystems to determine possible problem areas. (Author)
