RAPID: Research with Adaptive Particle Imaging Detectors
Principal Investigator: Patrick Daly, Germany
An advanced particle detector which records the highest energy electrons and ions which enter it from space. The particles pass through pinholes to reach the electron detectors. This enables it to build up a picture of where both the electrons and ions come from. Identification of the ions is based on analysis of the particles' velocities and energy.
