Floating strip Micromegas detectors are a novel concept, simple in construction and reliably to manufacture. All materials used are intrinsically radiation resistant such these detectors are expected to be applicable under extremely high background radiation conditions. The presentation reports on measurement of spatial and temporal resolution and its homogeneity across the detector surface of a 50 x 50 cm^2 floating strip Micromegas performed recently at the pion and muon test beams at CERN. Impacts due to highly ionizing particles which could trigger discharges are investigated. The performance of the floating strip Micromegas detector under high energy neutrons of fluences as high as 10^7/cm^2/s and with protons acting as highly ionizing particles will be studied using the neutron and proton irradiation facility setup at the Garching-Munich tandem accelerator laboratory.
