The PDS and the GRBM Experiments

The GRBM detector units belong to the PDS experiment, as well: actually, their use is double: first, they shield the PDS against high energy particles, and last but not least, they monitor the sky looking for GRBs and, in general, for hard X-ray transient sources.

In this section we start describing the PDS experiment and later on we will focus on the GRBM features and capabilities.
