    Abstract

    USERS satellite launched on 10 Sep. 2002 and SERVIS-1 satellite launched on 30 Oct. 2003 employed space-based observatory to provide spatial distribution of energetic charged particles and its variation to study the nature of radiation environment in the radiation belts. USERS satellite carries light particle detectors looking at different three directions to measure electrons, protons and alpha particles and a dose monitor. SERVIS-1 also carries a light particle detector to measure electrons, protons, alpha particles and heavy ions, single event upset monitors, dose monitors and shielded dose monitors. The flight performance of the instruments and the observation of energetic electrons, protons, alpha particles and heavy ions measured in the radiation belts were described.
