Take an image of meteor by a camera to estimate the meteoroid size from brightness.
Detect UV emission from a meteor by PMT, which is used as a trigger of a camera (minimum success). Take an image of meteor by a camera to estimate the meteoroid size from brightness (minimum success). Obtain the flux (i. e., size distribution) of meteors (full success). Estimate the compositions of meteors quantitatively from emission from species, such as sulfur (optional). The scientific instruments consist of a CCD camera inherited from SpriteSat and a Photomultiplier tube (PMT) for detection at ultraviolet wavelengths.
