Paper Abstract

This paper presents an overview of the near-earth, space-radiation environment, its effects on space craft that must exist in it, and means of quantifying and reducing these effects. Other aspects of the space environment are touched on for completeness and because they can impact both the consequences of radiation damage and the damage itself. Of necessity, the overview of such a large field in a small space must be cryptic. The goal is to familiarize at least a small portion of the opto-electronics community with the space and spacecraft-manufacturing environment in which they will be contributing their technology to an ever-increasing extent.
