Long Term Radiation Belt Remediation
Space Concepts Studio
RBR means removing the trapped electrons and ions from the near Earth environment for the benefit of manned and unmanned spacecraft.
A majority of the radiation Astronauts receive on orbit is attributed to the trapped radiation particles in the inner Van Allen belt.
Temporary and permanent eye damage.
Increased risk of cancers.
Time on orbit is limited by an Astronaut’s total radiation exposure, limiting the ability to study long term micro-gravity effects on Humans.
The daily dosage of radiation on the ISS is equal to 8 chest X-rays per day.
Radiation dosage on the ISS is roughly 4 orders of magnitude higher than at Sea Level.
Increased risk of heart, digestive, and respiratory diseases.
False stars in star tracker CCDs
Surface degradation from radiation
Solar array power decrease due to radiation damage
Electronics degrade due to total radiation dose
Solar array arc discharge
Single event effects in microelectronics: bit flips, fatal latch-ups
Spacecraft components become radioactive
Electromagnetic pulse from vehicle discharge
Cryogenic systems experience notable charged particle heating
Bit Flips / Single Event Upsets
Solar Panel Power Decrease
Change the particle’s pitch cone angle such that its velocity vector is pointed roughly parallel to the magnetic field lines.
Ion-Cyclotron Turbulence Generation
Very Low Frequency Radio Waves
1100 km alt
VLF should be further researched as the primary method for LT RBR
Feasibility study of Long Term operation of VLF stations
Additional study on the effects of RBR on the atmosphere should be conducted
A Radiation Belt is
more stylish than
International “Space EPA” to study and control RBR practices and take over NOAA’s space weather responsibilities.
