The objectives, instrumentation, methods, and data leading up to launch of the NASA Living With a Star (LWS) Space Environment Testbed (SET) payload onboard the Air Force Research Laboratory Demonstration and Science Experiments (DSX) spacecraft are described. The experiments characterize the space radiation environment and how it affects the hardware performance. The payload consists of a compact space weather instrument and a carrier containing four board experiments.
