  • SPACECRAFT INSTRUMENTATION  (2)

    Publication Date: 2011-08-18
    Description: Instrumentation has been developed, using the symmetric double-floating probe technique, to make vector electric field measurements from the low-altitude Dynamics Explorer (DE-B) spacecraft. Six 11-m cylindrical antennas are deployed along three orthogonal axes to form the sensor array. The outer two meters of each element are used as sensors, which results in a baseline of 21.4 m for the dc measurement for each axis. Efforts have been made to provide straight antennas and antennas that will not bend from thermal stresses as sun angles are changed. Measurements of the dc electric field will be made 16 times/sec or every half-kilometer along the orbit. Sensitivity will be 0.1 mV/m with a range of + or - 1 V/m. A 20-channel comb filter spectrometer will monitor ac electric fields, concentrating on frequencies below 1 kHz. Electric fields from any single axis or two axes may be sampled by the spectrometer within the range of 1 microvolt/m to 10 mV/m

    Description: It has been found that systematic measurements of the various properties of electric fields existing in space are required for an understanding of the plasma environment. Progress has, however, been limited by a lack of opportunities to fly the long antenna-probes required for double-probe measurements. The improved capabilities of ISEE-A should make it possible to conduct systematic studies of the spatial extent and variability of the zone of strong E-fields, or fast convection, in adjacent magnetospheric regions. The objectives of the ISEE-A measurements are discussed along with the symmetric double-probe floating-potential technique and the antenna-probe design. A description of the electronic design is also provided, giving attention to dc-field measurements, spin coupled dc-field measurements, and calibration and plasma impedance measurements.
