The prospects for the use of supercapacitors as elements of a satellite energy supply system are considered. A series of laboratory experiments to study the influence of gamma and electron irradiations on the supercapacitor performance is carried out. It is found that the total equivalent radiation dose that degrades the main technical characteristics of the supercapacitors can be accumulated in the Earth’s orbits during the time that is much longer than the satellite lifetime. The electrolyte is shown to be the most sensitive supercapacitor element to ionizing radiation.
