CMS Subsystem - Post-Challenger (as flown)

The CMS is designed to measure the composition of ions in the Jovian environment from energies of ≥10 keV nucl-1 to ≥10 MeV nucl-1. This system contains two types of energetic particle telescopes, shown schematically in Figure 1-11. A small time-of-flight (TOF) telescope looks in the 0° direction while a pair of DE x E solid state detector telescopes (JK detectors) covering higher energies are oriented in the 180° direction.
The TOF portion of CMS is a replacement of the original EPD TOF telescope built for launch in early 1986. JPL, NASA, and the Bundesministerium fur Forschung und Technologie allowed us the opportunity to take advantage of new technology in order to lower our energy threshold for composition measurements by at least a factor of ten....The new TOF telescope, its high voltage power supply, the new TOF circuitry, and the major modifications to the electronics subsystem were designed, built, tested, and integrated into the EPD in 1987 and 1988. All instrument and spacecraft tests and calibrations were successful and were indicative of an instrument response that exceeded expectations.
