The SOLSPEC experiment: Recent results and future investigations on board the international space station alpha
MetadataShow full item record
The SOLSPEC investigation has already been flown in orbit for measuring the absolute solar spectral irradiance. The scientific objectives for the ISSA mission are presented and their importance is discussed. The performance of the instrument will be shown using the recent SOLSPEC results. For the ISSA mission, changes have been already undertaken in order to meet the ISSA requirements (interfaces and reliability) and several instrumental improvements for a better science return.
