Dr Iris Gebauer (Karlsruhe Institute for Technology)
This talk will give an overview of direct cosmic ray measurements, sort of focussed on AMS, and an outlook to what is expected from future experiments like ISS-CREAM, DAMPE and CALET.

The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) is a multi-purpose particle physics detector designed to perform accurate measurements of cosmic ray (CR) charged particles in the GeV-TeV range. In 2011 it was installed onboard the International Space Station (ISS) and it continues taking data steadily since then. So far, AMS-02 has collected more than 100 billion charged cosmic ray events. AMS-02 has...

The CALorimetric Electron Telescope (CALET) space experiment, which has been developed by Japan in collaboration with Italy and the United States, is a high-energy astroparticle physics mission. The instrument was launched on August 19, 2015 to the ISS with HTV-5 (H-II Transfer Vehicle 5) and installed on the Japanese Experiment Module - Exposed Facility (JEM-EF) on August 25. The primary...
Prof. Justin Vandenbroucke (University of Wisconsin)
The Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) is optimized for gamma-ray measurements, but most of the events it records are protons. Compared to ground-based air shower arrays, the LAT provides complementary capabilities regarding cosmic-ray anisotropy. It is sensitive in the ~100 GeV energy range and above, views the entire sky using a single instrument with no holes in exposure, and can...
