Total 11 payloads are planned for Chandrayaan-1. Following are the 5 payload developed by Indian scientist.

Payload TMC | www.isro.org

Terrain Mapping stereo Camera ( TMC - ISRO ): The aim of TMC is to map topography in both near and far side of the Moon and prepare a 3-dimensional atlas with high spatial and altitude resolution. Such high resolution mapping of complete lunar surface will help us to understand the evolution process and allow detailed study of regions of scientific interests. more...

Payload HySI| www.isro.org

Hyper Spectral Imaging camera ( HySI - ISRO ): The aim is to obtain spectroscopic data for mineralogical mapping of the lunar surface. The data from this instrument will help in improving the available information on mineral composition of the lunar surface. more...

 

Payload LLRI| www.isro.org

Lunar Laser Ranging Instrument ( LLRI - ISRO ) : To provide ranging data for determining accurate altitude of the spacecraft above the lunar surface, determine the global topographical field of the Moon obtain an improved model for the lunar gravity field more...

 

Payload HEX| www.isro.org

High Energy X-ray spectrometer ( HEX - ISRO ) : The High-Energy X-ray spectrometer covers the hard X-ray region from about 30 keV to about 250 keV. This is the first experiment to carry out spectral studies of planetary surface at hard X-ray energies using good energy resolution detectors. more ...

 

Payload MIP| www.isro.org

Moon Impact Probe ( MIP - ISRO ) : The impact probe weighing 29 kg will ride piggyback on the top deck of the main orbiter and will be released at a predetermined time after the orbiter reaches the final 100km orbit to impact at a pre-selected location. more ...

 

ISRO selected six experiments from international scientific community for inclusion in Chandrayaan-1 mission. Following are the 5 payload developed by international scientific community.

Payload C1XS | www.isro.org

Chandrayaan-1 X-ray Spectrometer ( C1XS - ESA ) : When a primary X-ray beam strikes a sample the x-ray can either be absorbed or scattered by the atoms in the sample. The X-ray when absorbed by an atom transfers all its energy to an innermost electron. more...

 

Payload SIR-2 | www.isro.org

Near Infra Red spectrometer ( SIR-2 - ESA ) : The determination of the chemical composition of a planets crust and mantle is one of the important goals of planetary research. more...

 

Payload SARA| www.isro.org

Sub KeV Atom Reflecting Analyser ( SARA - ESA/ISRO ) : SARA will image the Moon surface using low energy neutral atoms as diagnostics in the energy range 10eV-2keV to address the following scientific objectives: more...


Payload RADOM| www.isro.org

Radiation Dose Monitor Experiment ( RADOM - BAS ) : RADOM will qualitatively and quantitatively characterize, in terms of particle flux, dose rate and deposited energy spectrum, the radiation environment in near moon space. more...


Payload MiniSAR| www.isro.org

Miniature Synthetic Aperture Radar ( MiniSAR - NASA ) : To detect water ice in the permanently shadowed regions on the Lunar poles up to a depth of a few meters. more...

 

Payload M3| www.isro.org

Moon Mineralogy Mapper ( M3 - NASA ) : M3 high-resolution mineral compositional maps will improve our understanding of the early evolution of a differentiated planetary body and also provide a high-resolution assessment of lunar resources. more...
