Abstract

As part of an ongoing research program on radiation monitoring on International Space Station (ISS) established to analyze the radiation exposure levels onboard the ISS using different radiation instruments and a spherical phantom to simulate human body. A Monte Carlo transport code was used to simulate the interaction of high energy protons and neutrons with the spherical phantom currently onboard ISS. The phantom has been exposed to individual proton energies and to a spectrum of neutrons. The internal to external neutron flux ratio was calculated and compared to the experimental data, recently, measured on the ISS.
