Aditya L1 India’s First Solar Mission by ISRO: All That You Need To Know
Remote Sensing Payloads 1. Visible Emission Line Coronagraph (VELC) 2. Solar Ultra-violet Imaging Telescope (SUIT) 3. Solar Low Energy X-ray Spectrometer (SoLEXS) 4. High Energy L1 Orbiting X-ray Spectrometer (HEL1OS) In-situ Payloads 1. Aditya Solar wind Particle EXperiment (ASPEX) 2. Plasma Analyser Package for Aditya (PAPA) 3. Advanced Tri-axial High-Resolution Digital Magnetometers
SUIT will help Imaging the Solar Photosphere and Chromosphere in near Ultra-violet (UV). It also measures the solar irradiance variations in near UV.
HEL1OS is a Hard X-ray spectrometer; studies the X-ray flares from the Sun over a wide X-ray energy range.
SWIS (Solar Wind Ion Spectrometer) is a low-energy spectrometer that is designed to measure the proton and alpha particles of the solar wind.
STEPS (Suprathermal and Energetic Particle Spectrometer)is a high-energy spectrometer that is designed to measure high-energy ions of the solar wind.
Magnetometer (MAG) onboard Aditya-L1 is meant to measure the low intensity interplanetary magnetic field in space. It has two sets of Magnetic Sensors:one at the tip of a 6 meter deployable boom, and the other in the middle of the boom, 3 meters away from the spacecraft.
