Abstract:

Several typical electronic flight control circuits with nuclear radiation damage thresholds of 10 to the 14th power fast neutronssq cm were redesigned to withstand 10 to the 17th power fast neutronssq cm. These circuits were operated and monitored for 100 hours while subjected to nuclear radiation, with very little change noted in operating characteristics. Techniques used in hardening these electronic circuits to withstand the nuclear radiation environment and details of test results are presented. Analyzed data in the form of curves are given and the effects of nuclear radiation on the electronic components and circuits tested, and photographs of the irradiated equipment are considered.
