Lightly doped drain (LDD) MOS transistors were subjected to proton radiation damage representative of the damage they would receive on a typical orbital space telescope mission. The noise spectral density was measured as a function of gate voltage, temperature and total radiation dose. These data were used to model the resultant noise lower limit read for that transistor when used as the charge-conversion, output stage of a charge-coupled-device (CDD) imaging array detector. Very clear evidence of excess noise being added to the CCD output as a function of radiation was found. It is possible to select combinations of temperature, CCD dual-correlated sample time constant and gate voltage which minimize the performance degradation due to this excess noise
