Radio Anatomy of Moon Bound Hypersensitive ionosphere and Atmosphere (RAMBHA-LP)

NSSDCA ID: 2023-098A-04

Mission Name: Chandrayaan 3

Description

The Radio Anatomy of Moon Bound Hypersensitive ionosphere and Atmosphere (RAMBHA-LP) is designed to make in-situ measurements of the ambient electron density and temperature near the lunar surface, and to study the temporal evolution of the local plasma density. RAMBHA-LP is a Langmuir probe consisting of a conducting titanium alloy sphere on the end of a one meter long non-conducting boom. The boom is deployed from the top deck of the lander. The electronics system for the instrument is mounted inside the lander.
