Plasma Analyser Package for Aditya (PAPA)

Plasma Analyser Package for Aditya (PAPA)  payload for the Aditya-L1 mission aims at studying the composition of solar wind and its energy distribution continuously throughout the mission’s life time. PAPA contains two sensors: Solar Wind Electron Energy Probe (SWEEP) to measure the solar wind electron flux and Solar Wind Ion Composition AnalyseR (SWICAR) to measure the ion flux and composition as a function of direction and energy.  Data from PAPA would provide detailed knowledge of the solar wind condition with high time resolution.
