Designing Proton and Electron Detector for Monitoring Solar Cosmic Rays

Abstract

The project of the compact space detector for measuring proton (10–100 MeV) and electron (to 10 MeV) energy spectra in solar cosmic rays is presented. The detector can operate in two modes: differential (each event is reconstructed) and integral (only energy spectrum and radiation composition are reconstructed at a high loading).
