Abstract : The primary objectives of this study were to (1) define representative nuclear radiation environments in which telemetry circuitry may be required to operate, (2) establish the capability of off-the-shelf telemetry modules to operate properly in these environments, and (3) evolve certain criteria and 'working tools' for the design of nuclear radiation tolerant telemetry. The general approach used in accomplishing these objectives was (1) to provide a brief discussion of the effects of nuclear radiation on materials and components, (2) to discuss potential nuclear radiation environmental combinations which might affect the design of a telemetry system, (3) to establish a Representative Telemetry System Model (RTSM) which includes the pertinent building blocks which might be used in any specific system, (4) to compile, correlate, and present in a tabular format the applicable radiation effects information required to perform the detailed nuclear radiation effects analysis, and (5) to discuss certain criteria for the effective design of nuclear radiation tolerant telemetry modules.
