Abstract

In November 2012, a workshop on the topic of designing spacecraft for operations in harsh radiation environments was held at Aberystwyth University. The immediate motivation was the European Space Agency (ESA) JUICE mission to Jupiter’s icy moons, for which the radiation to be encountered is a limiting factor in design of instruments. The workshop was organised as part of the Europlanet technology foresight program, and included a day of hands on tuition in radiation design tools by members of the ESA radiation design team. After this, and more conventional presentations, the meeting concluded with a discussion intended to establish a roadmap of the directions and technologies needed in the medium term. Discussions focused on the anticipated and desired developments in radiation modelling for spacecraft missions. They The discussions considered the potential developments in two phases. Changes in the immediate future, particularly in relation to JUICE, and the opportunities for long-term development over approximately the next twenty years.
