Abstract

The design of the ERNE experiment of the ESA and NASA collaborative SOHO mission is described. ERNE will investigate the sun by measuring energetic particles. Starting from the design objectives, as determined by the scientific goals of the experiment, and from the adopted basic solutions, the design and structure of the instrument are presented in detail. The fundamental technical aspects encountered in building a space instrument are briefly considered. The methods of implementation of scientifically the most important parts of the instrument, the sensors for measuring energetic particles and the associated electronics, are thoroughly explained. Both hardware and software are examined. The pre-flight calibrations of the instrument are described and the performance of the instrument in space is demonstrated.
