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):
Directed
Aims:

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.
