Low-Energy Electron-Proton Electrostatic Analyzer Array in 3 Orthogonal Directions

NSSDCA ID: 1981-075A-05

Mission Name: IK Bulgaria 1300
Principal Investigator:Dr. Tsvetan P. Dachev

Description

The instrument consisted of three sets of electrostatic analyzers (ESA); each set had three ESAs, one to measure protons and two to measure electrons. The angular field of view for each individual analyzer was 7 deg x 24 deg. One set viewed out along the spacecraft Z axis and the other two along perpendicular axes in the spacecraft X-Y plane at azimuthal angles of 50 and 140 deg. The energy per charge range from 0.2 to 15 keV/Q could be covered by up to 16 channels/s and the energy resolution adjusted to 0.1, 0.2, or 0.3. The flux range was 1.E4 to 1.E9 particles/(sq cm-sr-keV-s).
