Plasma Flow Detector VDP-S

NSSDCA ID: 1995-039F-08

Mission Name: Magion 4
Principal Investigator:Dr. Georgy Zastenker


This instrument consists of four Faraday cup detectors, registering ions and electrons with energies above 170 eV. The detectors are oriented at +/- 45 degrees from the main axis of the spacecraft, and have an angular aperture of 100 degrees. The maximum frequencies used are 1, 2, 4, and 8 Hz (depending on the telemetry mode).
