Operational Radiation Safety Program for Astronauts in Low-Earth Orbit: A Basic Framework: Recommendations of the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements by National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements Staff

This report examines key elements of the operational radiation safety program, including the necessary radiation dosimetry, radiation exposure information that should be recorded, and implementation plans for Space Shuttle and International Space Station missions. Current program management is evaluated, the radiation environment in low-earth orbit is described, an approach to dose assessment is outlined, and recommendations for improvement are offered. Appendices discuss time-dependent variation in the space radiation environment, computational methods, thermoluminescence dosimetry materials, and plastic nuclear track detectors. Annotation c.
