Abstract. The radiation factors during the forthcoming launch of the satellite Mars'94 are discussed in the present paper: the sterilization procedures of the satellite, the crossing of the radiation belts, the solar flares during the flight and the orbiting around Mars. A model for the calculation of the accumulaied dose of the Langmuir probe is suggested. The radiation hazard for damage of the electronics is estimated.
