DISR - Descent Imager and Spectral Radiometer


The Huygens Descent Imager and Spectral Radiometer (DISR) made measurements of solar radiation as it traveled through Titan's atmosphere and landed on the surface. Its suite of seven instruments includes photodiodes, a charge-coupled device (CCD), and two near-infrared linear array detectors. The interaction of sunlight with Titan's surface and atmospheric aerosols and gases will provide insight into the nature of Titan's surface and the composition, meteorology, thermal balance, and clouds and aerosols in Titan's atmosphere.
