The EPT is a small satellite payload designed to monitor space radiation.
The EPT is a highly innovative particle classification instrument designed to detect electrons, protons, alphas and heavier ions in the space environment. Its main technological advantages are:
Full particle discrimination at high energy without using a huge amount of sensor material
Real-time flux measurement: needed for detailed space weather forecasting
Modularity: the EPT instrument (the angle of view, the particle energy detection range) can be easily reconfigured to fit the user’s needs
Low power, low mass: 210 x 162 x 128 mm³, <4.6kg , <6W
