(InterComparison for Cosmic-ray with Heavy Ion Beams At NIRS)
Intercomparison of the Response of Space Radiation Dosimeters and Spectrometers to Heavy Ion Beams at the Accelerator Facilities
- Establish and characterize a heavy ion "reference standard" against which space radiation instruments can be calibrated.
- Determine the response of space radiation dosimeters to heavy ions of charge and energy similar to that found in the galactic cosmic radiation (GCR) spectrum.
- Aid in reconciling differences in measurements made by various radiation instruments during space flight.
