Status of Developing a Near Real-Time Capability for Estimating Space Radiation Exposure Using EMMREM 2009-01-2340

The central objective of the Earth-Moon-Mars Radiation Environment Module (EMMREM) project is to develop and validate a numerical module for completely characterizing time-dependent radiation exposure in the Earth-Moon-Mars and Interplanetary space environments. An important step in the process of building this system is the development of the interfaces between EMMREM's internal components, many of which have existed previously as stand-alone simulation codes. This work specifically discusses the development and implementation of the interface, primarily using the Perl scripting language, between two input data set generators, one of which describes the space radiation environment at some desired location, and a space radiation transport and shielding code, BRYNTRN, that provides estimates at fairly short time intervals of dose and dose equivalent behind shielding.
