Paper Abstract

First results about the performance of the temperature sensors (TEM) of Huygens Atmospheric Structure Instrument (HASI) obtained during Flight Model test campaign are presented and discussed. TEM belongs to the STUB subsystem of HASI, which is a multidisciplinary experiment package dedicated to the investigation of Titan atmosphere during the descent of the Huygens probe. TEM sensors are described, their characteristics and performances discussed and the data of thermal tests carried out at subsystem level and at probe level evaluated. From this preliminary analysis it seems that the sensors are suited to achieve the scientific objective of HASI experiment if post flight data correction is appropriately done.
