Details on this mission type
Full name Space Weather: Field and wave monitoring
Definition This mission addresses the measurement of magnetic and electric fields and their oscillations in the magnetosphere and ionosphere
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 measurement technique.

The rating is loosely linked to the impact on the mission objectives, as follows:

  1. Magnetometer (vectorial or scalar).
  2. Electrometer.
  3. Magnetic or electric oscillator.
  4. Active radio device.
  5. Radio receiver.
