Abstract
The NINA apparatus, on board the Russian satellite Resurs-01 No. 4, has bee n in polar orbit since 1998 July 10, at an altitude of 840 km. Its main sci entific task is to study the Galactic, solar, and anomalous components of c osmic rays in the energy interval 10-200 MeV nucleon(-1). In this paper we present a description of the instrument and its basic operating modes. Meas urements of Galactic cosmic-ray spectra will also be shown.
