Collect data on auroral activity to predict space weather.

Description

Collect data on the auroral activity on both the northern and southern hemispheres, such that a global picture of the current state of activity can be made available on-line. The data acquired by Munin will then serve as an input to the prediction of space weather. Collect data on the auroral activity on both the northern and southern hemispheres. Combined electron and ion spectrometer, an instrument first to be flown on the Swedish Astrid-2 mission. In addition it will measure high energy particles with a solid state detector, and image the aurora with a miniature CCD camera.

Failure cause Likely to boot PROM failure after manual CPU reset.
