Kimoto, Yugo, et al. (2013). "Passive Space Environment Effect Measurement on JEM/MPAC&SEED." Protection of Materials and Structures From the Space Environment 32: 73-82
A space materials exposure experiment was conducted on the exterior of the International Space Station (ISS) using the Micro-Particles Capturer and Space Environment Exposure Device (MPAC&SEED) of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). The MPAC&SEED experiments were aboard both the Russian Service Module (SM/MPAC&SEED) and the exposed Facility of the Japanese Experiment Module, KIBO Exposed Facility (JEM/MPAC&SEED). The JEM/MPAC&SEED was attached to the Space Environment Data Acquisition Equipment-Attached Payload (SEDA-AP). The MPAC&SEED experiment included samples to monitor the fluence of AO, UV, the total dose of space radiation and the maximum temperature. In this paper, the results of the analyses of the space environment effects on the JEM/MPAC&SEED monitoring samples are described.
