Abstract:

The Small On-Board Environmental Sensors Package SOBEDS is a suite of spacecraft instruments designed to measure ionizing radiation in the near Earth space environment. The purpose of data gathered by the SOBEDS instrument is to improve the understanding of the Earths radiation belts and the effect of ionizing radiation on Air Force space systems. This report is concerned with the experimental and computational effort in the design of the High Energy Proton HEP sensor for the SOBEDS suite. HEP is designed to measure the differential energy fluxes of protons with energies between 25 and 300 MeV.
