IOWA SPACE GRANT CONSORTIUM
During four decades of spaceflight, instruments designed to measure these particles have been an effective tool for exploration. New sensor technology offers the opportunity to redesign the basic analyzer configuration with the goal of reducing the mass and volume of the analyzer plates that guide the particles to the sensors. A new plate design that fulfills this goal has been modeled to determine the particle trajectories that will be accepted by this analyzer. It is anticipated that successful testing...
