Measure solar radiation and educational mission.

Description

The first scientific goal is to measure the incoming solar radiations (total solar irradiance) and the outgoing terrestrial radiations (top of atmosphere outgoing longwave radiations and shortwave radiations) using twelve miniaturized thermopiles sensors. The second scientific goal is to monitor the solar spectral irradiance at 215 nm (Herzberg solar continuum) using four photodiodes based on intrinsic advantages of pulsed laser deposition of ZnO nanostructures with MgZnO alloy. The third objective is to space-qualified a medical device for astronauts
