The Environmental Sensors

Northern Light will be equipped with seven environmental sensors to monitor landing-site conditions. The environmental sensors will measure UV (see Fig 2), oxidizing substances, air temperature (?120 to +30ºC), air pressure, wind speed, dust impact, and vibration. These sensors will have a combined mass of 130 g. Flight models have been developed already for Beagle 2.
