Energetic Particle Detectors

NSSDCA ID: 1978-099C-02

Mission Name: Magion 1
Principal Investigator:Dr. Pavel Triska


This investigation was designed to utilize simultaneous measurements made on the nearby parent spacecraft Intercosmos 18. The detectors were Geiger-Mueller tubes viewing in two directions, parallel and perpendicular to the magnetic orientation axis. The energy threshold was 30 keV for electrons. Due to power limitations, except during the short initial phase after separation and activation, not all instrument were operated simultaneously. Either electric field broadband, magnetic field broadband, or VLF narrow-band channels and particle detectors were operated.

Alternate Names
