Abstract : This report results from a contract tasking Bulgarian Academy of Sciences as follows: The Grantee will investigate the development of Langmuir probes for measuring space plasma. Tasks include: - Integration tests of the Langmuir probes with the Hungarian Data Acquisition and Control Unit (in Budapest) - Complex tests of the engineering models of the instruments with imitation signals fed to the sensors (in RKK) - Updating of the technological instruments (if proved necessary based on the results of the tests) - Elaboration of two flight instruments - Elaboration of Control Test System for the flight instruments - Control tests of the flight instruments in Bulgaria - Integrated tests of the flight instruments on the PWC - Data processing and interpretation
