|MARS-96     ||ROBOTIC SPACECRAFT MISSION TO MARS. Brief description|
INSTRUMENTS FOR ASTROPHYSICAL-TRAJECTORY STUDIES
PRECISION GAMMA SPECTROMETER
Main scientific objectives:: measurements of gamma radiation from the Martian surface, powerful solar flares and gamma-bursts.
The instrument operates without pauses along the Earth-to-Mars trajectory recording cosmic gamma-rays. On the orbit around Mars the instrument measures gamma spectra of the surface in the region of planetary pericentersexperiment combines two fluxgate magnetometers and two spectrometer for measuring 3D distribution of electrons and ions.
Instrument is a measuring complex which consists of the following units:
The detection unit with an amplifier and a thermal control system will be mounted on a special deploying structure to prevent heat loads from spacecraft hardware.
