Radiation effects on image sensors
Author(s): Alain Bardoux; Antoine Penquer; Olivier Gilard; Robert Ecoffet; Michel Auvergne

Paper Abstract

Radiation is a major issue for satellite development, especially when using detectors, either for the mission itself, or for platform sensors. This paper will give CNES experience in the effects of radiations on detector and mission performances. Data from several satellites is presented (Earth observation, Astronomy, star trackers). We will make comparison between this data, to try to determine common behaviours. We will finish by describing the mitigation techniques against radiation effects.
