Task GCR Simulation Dose Rate Studies
Last Published:  04/20/22 11:43:24 AM (Central)
Short Title: GCR Sim Dose Rate
Responsible HRP Element: Space Radiation
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Planned-Funded - Task expected to be within budget
Procurement Mechanism(s):

Dose-rate and mixed field animal and cellular studies, supporting the development and concept of operations of the NSRL GCR Simulator, are sought to:


Specific Aims:

  • Aim 1: Provide data to define the dose delivery scheme for low-LET radiation, the dose delivery scheme for high-LET radiation, and the time course (duration) of cellular and animal studies for simulation of GCR-induced endpoints; including studies to understand the principles governing biological responses to a mixed field of low- and high-LET radiation.


  • Aim 2: Reduce uncertainties in dose-rate effects used to estimate risks from space radiation exposures.


Secondary aim:


  • Aim 3: Generate mixed field RBEs for relevant endpoints.
