As part of MSU's research effort into building radiation tolerant computing systems for aerospace applications, a radiation sensor has been developed to provide environmental awareness to the flight computer. This sensor is designed to detect the spatial location of radiation strikes with energy levels that cause single event effects in modern CMOS electronics. These are typically due to trapped protons and heavy ions. Our HASP payload consists of a radiation sensor system in addition to an FPGA-based flight computer that will record strikes throughout the duration of the flight.
