An electron spectrometer is being designed to measure electron flux in the range of 3 to 30 MeV. A breadboard unit has been designed and tested, using a solid state detector telescope for geometric factor and a Cerenkov radiatorPMT for energy measurement. The measured response to electrons is very broad, so the Cerenkov radiator is being redesigned as a larger volume with larger PMTs to improve the energy resolution. Following testing of the modified Cerenkov radiatorPMT, a protoflight unit will be fabricated, tested and calibrated. The protoflight electron spectrometer is to be integrated to the Small Onboard Environmental Diagnostic Sensors SOBEDS Package.
