ERS 6 was a 31-cm-diameter balloon satellite. It was one of three spacecraft simultaneously placed into orbit by a single launch vehicle. The spacecraft carried only one experiment on board, a solar cell damage experiment. However, the satellite was also designed to investigate the effects of the solar radiation pressure on orbital characteristics (i.e. eccentricity and period) for a negligible atmospheric drag situation. The spacecraft returned solar cell damage data.
