Space Radiation and Impact on Instrumentation TechnologiesUnderstanding the interactions of the Sun, Earth and other natural and man-made objects in the solar system with the space radiation environment is crucial for improving activities of humans on Earth and in space. An important component of understanding these interactions is their effects on the instrumentation required in the exploration of air and space. NASA's Glenn Research Center (GRC) fills the role of developing supporting technologies to enable improved instruments for space science missions, as well as improved instruments for aeronautics and ground-based applications. In this review, the space radiation environment and its effects are outlined, as well the impact it has on instrumentation and the technology that GRC is developing to improve performance for space science.
