Abstract. In this short article we present the results obtained during the radiation testing of CubeSat components developed by EnduroSat in the CERN Gamma Irradiation Facility (GIF++). Irradiation of an assembled 1U CubeSat by a Caesium-137 source was performed during July-September 2017 for a total of 49 days during which the satellite was fully functional and performing various operations. An accumulated dose of 405 Gy (40.5 krad) was measured by a RADMON positioned on top of the satellite. This article presents a detailed description of the setup, components included in the test and the obtained results.
