Abstract

The Dust Complex (DC) instrument was designed to be installed on the landing platform of the ExoMars project. The purpose of the experiment is to study the dynamics of dust particles in the near-surface atmosphere of Mars and to evaluate the main characteristics of the near-surface medium that determine their dynamics. The device makes it possible to register dust particles in the near-surface atmosphere of Mars, determine the main parameters and measure some characteristics of the plasma-dust medium related to the dynamics of dust particles near the Martian surface. The article provides a description of the device, its blocks and sensors, the main elements of the measurement program and characteristics of the measured parameters.
