04.2017 The NUCLEON experiment. Results of the first year of data acquisition
The NUCLEON experiment aims to study chemical composition and energy spectra of galactic cosmic rays for nuclei charges Z = 1 - 30 and energies 1011 -1015 eV. The research is conducted with the help of the NUCLEON scientific equipment installed on the Russian satellite ;Resurs-P; No. 2 as an additional payload. This article describes the results of the first year of the space experiment NUCLEON, including methodological features of data acquisition mode setup, evaluation of the equipment's performance and methods it provides, as well as preliminary results of data analysis.
