Abstract
The results of research of proton and neutron space radiation fluxes influence on spectrometric characteristics of high pressure xenon gamma-spectrometer (HPXGS) which has been working on board the orbital station 'MIR' since 1990 are submitted. It is shown that energy resolution and test gamma- line position in registered spectra have not practically changed for six years of gamma-spectrometer's work. Other type of HPXGS (the cylindrical ionization chamber) was subjected to neutrons irradiation of Pu-Be source in laboratory conditions. The analysis of these measurement results are given.
