Abstract:

The Naval Research Laboratory was requested to study the problem of radiation survivability for the Jupiter-Saturn spacecraft beginning with the 1976 launch. This report describes in some detail one phase of the survivability project calculations of proton fluence spectra that might be expected from Jupiters trapped radiation on the basis of the best trapped radiation models currently available.
