Abstract
Estimation of the radiation environment for RADARSAT II satellite (to be launched in the fall 2000) is presented using industry-standard space radiation models CREME and AE8/AP8. Radiation transport Monte Carlo codes TRIM and ITS 3.0 Tiger were then subsequently used to calculate the total radiation dose received by RADARSAT II during the planned 5.25 year mission.
