USED SCIENCE HARDWARE:
LSO equipment, including:
- Microcamera unit on a rotary bracket;
- Cable set.
- Control unit for EGE1 experiment;
- Removable hard disk for EGE1.
Recording and mapping of the wave processes in upper
mesosphere and lower thermosphere by wave-like disturbances
in the boundary surface between optically thin and
optically dense atmosphere.
Study of wave characteristics at altitudes of upper
mesosphere and lower thermosphere depending upon
a season and geographic location.
- Looking into a possibility of recording the
waves generated by high-power pulse sources of
natural and technogenic character at mesospheric
- Recording of atmospheric waves originating
from persistent thermospheric sources (atmospheric
convection, changes in thermospheric circulation,
stream flows, the processes of interacting of
surface air flow with the Earth surface relief).
scientific information (digital video recording)
obtained via LSO equipment and recorded on the replaceable
ballistic data (ISS orientation, ISS altitude, geographic
coordinates of subsatellite point, Sun and Moon angles)
for referencing the measurement results.
