The SONG (SOlar Neutron and Gamma-ray spectrometer) device has been developed and
constructed in cooperation between DSP-IEP-SAS and Institute of Nuclear Physics of
Moscow State University (NIIJAF-MGU) for project CORONAS-I.
The detector part named SONG-D has been provided by NIIJAF and the Data Processing Unit named SONG-E
was provided by IEP SAS.
The SONG-E provided registration of variety of pulse signals from the detector part
as well as the science data compression and formatting for two telemetry systems of the AUOS-Z spacecraft.
The SONG-E is built on three 80C85 processors, two of them were providing the registration tasks while
third one was providing the data processing and communication with the telemetry.
The SONG device delivered a lot of valuable scientific data concerning the distribution of neutron
and gama radiation in the Earth vicinity that are currently processed and analysed.
