TEC-EPS Final Presentation Days - June 2021




The TEC-EPS Final Presentation Days, organised by ESA's Space Environments and Effects section, will take place on June 16 and 17, 2021 virtually. The two days will cover recent results from ESA's Space Environment R&D activities on space environment monitor developments and space environment modelling, analysis and simulation tools.

      ARTES EOR Radiation Environment and Solar Array Degradation 30m

      Speakers: Athina Varotsou (TRAD) & Angélica Sicard (ONERA)
      In the frame of this ARTES Project a new proton radiation environment model has been developed and a Solar Array Degradation Calculator (SADC) is being developed to allow for more precise calculation of solar array degradation specific to EOR orbits. During this presentation both developments will be presented with a special emphasis on the proton model developed by ONERA. This model is a global statistical model dedicated to EOR orbit environment specification. OMEP-EOR (ONERA Middle Energy Proton) provides the proton fluxes everywhere in the radiation belts between 30keV and 20MeV. The temporal dynamics of the radiation belt is accounted for at the scale of EOR missions, using a Gaussian Process model.
