The research results of electrons, neutrons and gamma rays effect on the triple photovoltaic converters (PVCs) based on the InGaP/InGaAs/Ge semiconductor structure are presented. It is shown that the degradation curves of photoelectric parameters for various types of irradiation collapse to a single characteristic curve when converting fluence into displacement damage dose. The results obtained can be considered as the basis for predicting the active life of spacecraft solar batteries. The work also considers the degree of degradation of each PVC subcells.
Keywords: photovoltaic converter, AIIIBV semiconductor materials, electrons, neutrons, gamma rays.

The study of the effect of static gamma radiation on the characteristics of the main elements of the optical part of a fiber laser: fiber Bragg gratings, active fibers and on the output power of fiber lasers, assembled on the basis of the investigated elements, were conducted. An analysis, based on the balance equations, shows that the rate of decrease in the output power of an uninterruptible fiber laser is determined by the value of radiation-induced losses in the active fiber core and also depends on the length of the active fiber and the reflectance of the output mirror. The obtained simulative representations of the radiation response of a fiber laser make it possible to estimate the radiation sensitivity of the optical part of the entire laser by studying only the active fiber.
Keywords: fiber laser, fiber Bragg grating, radiation induced absorption, exposure dose of gamma radiation.

The effect of the duration of the interorbital trip areas with low-thrust electric propulsion system (EPS) turned off on the radiation loads, obtained during the transfer of communication space vehicle from low-earth orbit to geostationary orbit, is explored. Radiation loads are compared in scenarios of deorbiting with full-time EPS and with it being interrupted on a time basis, including various periods of solar activity.
Keywords: spacecraft, total radiation dose, interorbital transfer, solar activity, injection scenario, electric propulsion system.
