Abstract: 
Principles of the physical simulation of radiative electrization of spacecraft in the ionosphere and magnetosphere are formulated, methodology of this simulation is elaborated. The cyclogramas and impulses of high-voltage discharges which are detected are shown to carry complete information about electrophysical properties of materials. Efficiency of plasma neutralization of the radiation influence was found to depend on concentration of low-temperature plasma and structure of irradiated surface.
Keywords: low-temperature plasma, radiation influence, spacecraft
