Radiation Dose Evaluation and Analysis Inside FY-3A Satellite

FY-3A satellite can measure the radiation dose data from different directions during the missions from 2008 to 2012.In this paper,we describe total radiation dose from two directions,and dose rate variation with energetic particle flux.The result shows that different sections of the spacecraft receive different amounts of radiation dose,which is always consistent with space distribution of energetic particles.Absorbed dose rate changed greatly from several rad(Si)·d~(-1)during quite time to even more than tenfold during disturbances.The increased high energy electrons in polar regions during disturbances are responsible for significant increase of radiation dose.At last,FY-3A radiation dose during the operational period of the mission is compared with the results calculated by SPENVIS.It is obvious that observation data is more realistic to reflect the real space radiation environment.
