Instrument: EPD (PROBA-V)
Energetic Particle Telescope
Measurement of energetic particles in the platform environment
Two particle telescopes, one for low and one for high energies, measuring the energy deposited by charged particles into twelve sensitive elements to cover a circular field of view of 50*. Energy ranges: 0.2-10 MeV (electrons), 4-300 MeV (protons) and 16-1000 MeV (alpha-particles).
