Influence of Space Radiation on Advanced Components
To monitor the effect of ambient energetic particles on onboard electronic circuits. Also relevant for Space weather.
Suite of detectors for electrons (0.05-6 MeV), protons (8-30 MeV) and heavy ions.
The instruments, first flown on SAC-C, has also been flown on SAC-D in an updated version (ICARE-NG, New Generation) as part of the CARMEN-1 complex that also includes SODAD (Système orbital pour la détection active des débris) to form a complex named CARMEN-1
