Details on this mission type
Full name Space weather: Heliospheric radiation monitoring
Definition This mission addresses the measurement of elettromagnetic radiation at several wavelengths (Gamma-rays, X-rays, EUV, UV, VIS, NIR/SWIR and Radio waves) in the interplanetary space and the Earth's environment
Relevant instruments and their contribution

The sorting column describes how the instruments, by design, have the potential to contribute to certain pre-determined capabilities, assuming nominal operation of space and ground segments. For this particular capability, instrument performance is considered to be driven by:

  • the spectral band of the observed radiation.

The colour scale is not related to the measurement performance, but rather to the radiation band, as follows:

  1. Gamma rays (>1.2 MeV).
  2. X-rays (0.001-10 nm or 0.12-1200 keV).
  3. EUV (10-121.6 nm).
  4. UV (121.6 to 400 nm).
  5. VIS (400-700 nm) and NIR+SWIR (700-1300 + 1300-3000 nm) and Radio waves (here intended as 0-300 GHz).
