The project LUNA-26 is a space exploration mission dedicated for advanced study of Moon and its environment. The project LUNA-26 is conducted by Space Research Institute (IKI-RAN) in Moscow, Russian Federation.
The ASPECT-L is a scientific space device dedicated for charged energetic particles temporal and energy sampling on board of lunar orbiter. ASPECT-L is presently under development at laboratory of space technology of DSP-IEP-SAS. The ASPECT-L is a joint international scientific space project of IEP-SAS, Democritus University of Thrace, Greece and Space Research Institute (IKI) in Moscow.
The ASPECT-L is equipped with four passive cooled silicon solid state detectors (SSD), two of them are dedicated for detection of the energetic ions, another two detect the energetic electrons. The device is powered from 27 V onboard power distribution and communicates with onboard telemetry system by 1 Mbps serial link.
