Double Spherical Electron Temperature Probes

NSSDCA ID: 1981-075A-04

Mission Name: IK Bulgaria 1300
Principal Investigator:Dr. Ventsislav G. Markov

Description

The instrumentation consisted of a double probe that viewed along the spacecraft X axis. The gold spherical sensors were capable of measuring the electron temperature from 500 to 6,000 deg K and the spacecraft potential from -30 to +5 V. This experiment failed.
