India’s Maiden Sun mission Aditya-L1 to carry 7 scientific payloads

Date:

Indi’s maiden solar Exploratory Mission,

ADITYA-L1 satellite, to take off in the coming days, will carry

seven scientific payloads, indigenously developed by different

laboratories in the country, to carry out systematic study of the

Sun’s surface.

ISRO said the Aditya-L1 mission carries a suit of seven scientific

payloads to carry out systematic study of the Sun.

The Visible Emission Line Coronagraph (VELC) studies the solar

corona and dynamics of Coronal Mass Ejections.

The Solar Ultra-violet Imaging Telescope (SUIT) payload images

the Solar Photosphere and Chromosphere in near Ultra-violet (UV)

and also measures the solar irradiance variations in near UV.

The Aditya Solar wind Particle EXperiment (ASPEX) and Plasma

Analyser Package for Aditya (PAPA) payloads study the solar wind

and energetic ions, as well as their energy distribution.

The Solar Low Energy X-ray Spectrometer (SoLEXS) and The High

Energy L1 Orbiting X-ray Spectrometer (HEL1OS) studies the X-ray

flares from the Sun over a wide X-ray energy range.

The Magnetometer payload is capable of measuring interplanetary

magnetic fields at the L1 point.

The science payloads of Aditya-L1 are indigenously developed by

different laboratories in the

country.

The VELC instrument is developed at the Indian Institute of

Astrophysics, Bangalore; SUIT instrument at Inter University

Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics , Pune; ASPEX instrument

at Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad; PAPA payload at

Space Physics Laboratory, Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre,

Thiruvananthapuram; SoLEXS and HEL1OS payloads at the

U R Rao Satellite Centre, Bangalore, and the Magnetometer

payload at the Laboratory for Electro Optics Systems, Bangalore.

All the payloads are developed with the close collaboration of

various centres of ISRO.
