mission is an observatory class satellite with a large number of scientific
payloads to study (i) Solar flares, (ii) Galactic and
sources near the ecliptic plane, (iii) Gamma-ray bursts, and (iv)
X-ray background. The main goal of the CORONAS-PHOTON mission is to
Solar hard and electromagnetic radiation in the broad-band energy range
to high energy gamma- ray (~2000 MeV).
The primary instruments of the mission are high energy radiation
NATALYA-2M (developed by Russia) and low energy gamma-ray spectrometer
(developed by India). The RT-2 (Roentzen Telescope) telescope will
energy range from 15 to 150 keV. One of the main goal of RT-2 is
the Solar flares in hard X-ray energy range of 20 keV to 100 keV.
The RT-2 Experiment is comprised of 3 detectors namely RT-2/S, RT-2/G
Phoswich detectors), RT-2/CZT (Solid-state imaging detector) and 1
electronics device RT-2/E.
