Abstract

We present the description of a design for a proposed Dust Flux Analyser for the Rosetta cometary mission. A concept first developed for the NASA/ESA Tempel II Rendezvous and Halley Intercept Mission /1/, the instrument is able to measure dust particle parameters and fluxes over a velocity range typical of emission from cometary surfaces. It would be mounted on the Rosetta Orbiter and would measure the variation in Bur rate throughout all mission phases at the comet. The instrument would measure particle flux, velocity, momentum and density, shape and scattering properties.
