Space radiation is a key design consideration for any spacecraft. At JPL, radiation transport tools like Geant4 are used for understanding and estimating cumulative radiation effects such as total ionizing dose (TID) as well as the transient effects such as on instruments during operation. However, a variety of tools are available and used across various institutions participating in JPL missions. In my presentation, I will discuss TID validation analyses performed at JPL to compare commonly used radiation transport tools as well as overview some Geant4 analyses performed for JPL missions.
