Measure the Linear Energy Transfer (LET) spectrum.

Description

The main payload is TEPC which can measure the Linear Energy Transfer (LET) spectrum and calculate the equivalent dose for the complicated radiation field in the space. The magnetometer is a secondary payload using a miniaturized fluxgate magnetometer. To measure the Linear Energy Transfer (LET) spectrum, and the equivalent dose for complicated radiation filed in space environment. To study space radiation effect on human body. To measure ULF waves at low altitudes using a newly developed miniature fluxgate magnetometer.
