Theoretical approaches to the construction of a spectrometric diamond detector of fluxes of ionizing radiation are considered. The device is intended for continuous monitoring of the radiation conditions onboard space vehicles for quickly arriving at decisions as regards active protection and prediction of the remaining life of space transportation systems.
