PROBLEMS IN THE LABORATORY SIMULATION OF SPACE PARTICULATE RADIATION
ARNOLD ENGINEERING DEVELOPMENT CENTER ARNOLD AFB TN
Space particulate radiation is reviewed, the damage mechanisms are discussed, and estimates are made of the hazardous nature of the various radiation zones. The existing capability for reproducing the space environment in ground test facilities is evaluated. It is concluded that the duplication of the complete space environment is not possible but that useful testing can be accomplished with existing techniques. Research programs are proposed for the evaluation of ground test requirements.
