(nucleonics)
The radiation dosage absorbed per unit of time; a radiation dose rate can be set at some particular unit of time (for example, H-hour plus 1 hour) and would be called H-hour plus 1 radiation dose rate.

This REID is still> 3% of the NASA's permissible exposure limit (PEL) *A lethal dose of 391 mSv seems to correspond to the NASA's PEL 3% of REID *Results of this study suggest that a future space flight to Mars would need increase in propulsion power for a faster speed and a shortened round trip, and increase in protective radiation shielding to reduce radiation dose rate, and a shortened stay on Mars for the astronauts' radiation safety in a future space flight to Mars.
It is shown that the real-time radiation dose rate of the moveable radiation source deposited in a lead box is between 0.25 [micro]Gy/h and 0.5 [micro]Gy/h, the radiative dose rate of the environmental background is between 0 and 0.15 [micro]Gy/h, and the former is more volatile than that of the latter.
