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
