Abstract:

Several published models for the interplanetary heavy-ion environment resulting from galactic cosmic rays and solar-flare-accelerated ions are described. These models are used to calculate linear energy transfer LET spectra behind 1 g cm to the minus 2 power 150 mils of aluminum shielding. Appropriate parameters multipliers are deduced form theses spectra for use in the Suggested Single-Event Upset Figure of Merit calculation described by Petersen et al. 1983. The results of this study are compared to the suggestions of E.C. Smith, and the differences between the two are discussed. Keywords Radiation effects Cosmic rays Solor flares.
