Mmonitor high energy protons and electrons, and their incoming direction, while employing new technology that furthers particle detection in space.


Study solar energetic particle events and increase our knowledge of the Sun. CREPES will fly a new type of micropattern gaseous detector using gas electron multipliers to amplify the signals of radiation. Data obtained from these measurements is expected to contribute to the understanding of space weather and development of space climatology.
