Abstract:

Estimation of the radiation environment for RADARSAT II satellite to be launched in the fall 2000 is presented using industry standard space radiation models CREME and AE8AP8. Radiation transport Monte Carlo codes TRIM and ITS 3.0 Tiger were then subsequently used to calculate the total radiation dose received by RADARSAT II during the planned 5.25 year mission.
