The method for single event effect rate calculation used in the practice of satellites hardness assurance to space environment is presented. We propose solutions allowing conduct single event effect rate calculation with consideration for real shielding distribution at the point of integral circuit placement inside a satellite. The results obtained through the method are compared with the ones calculated with the standard CREME-96 model.
