Detailed radiation analysis for scientific instruments may necessitate the retention of very detailed particle track information in order to post-process the track and ionisation data for different instrument conditions. For applications in commercial space industry, the retention of phase-space data can also be used as a method of quantifying the radiation local to a spacecraft subsystem without the need to release to the subsystem manufacturer the details of the overall spacecraft geometry. This paper examines particle phase-space data persistency for these two applications as implemented with ESA’s GRAS application for the CIRSOS and AREMBES Projects, and discusses the strategies and pitfalls for this type of approach.
