Wavelength Scanning UV Photometer

NSSDCA ID: 1981-075A-09

Mission Name: IK Bulgaria 1300
Principal Investigator:Dr. Mitko Marinov Gogoshev


The instrument consisted of a lined grating spectrometer that scanned from 1150 to 2600 A with a resolution of 10 A. The field of view was conical with a half angle of 4.5 deg centered on the nadir, which was the spacecraft negative Z-axis. The intensity range covered from 80 rayleighs to 200 kilorayleighs. The instrument was capable of measuring the nightglow and the dayglow atmospheric spectra.
