Solar Imaging Suite (SIS) - 1 • Sun-staring instruments. • Solar X-Ray Imager • Full solar disk imager in soft x-ray to EUV. • Locate coronal holes for geomagnetic storm forecasts • Detect and locate flares for forecasts of solar energetic particle events related to flares • Monitor changes in the corona that indicate coronal mass ejections (CMEs) • Detect active regions beyond east limb for F10.7 forecasts • Analyze active region complexity for flare forecasts.
Solar Imaging Suite (SIS) - 2 • X-Ray Sensor (XRS) • Measures solar X-ray output. • Primary measure of and standard for solar flare magnitude. • Detects the beginning, duration, and magnitude of solar X-ray flares. • Input for the empirical model of Solar Energetic Proton events.
Solar Imaging Suite (SIS) - 3 • Extreme Ultra-Violet Sensor (EUVS) • Measures solar variability in EUV radiation. • Primary driver in ionospheric/thermospheric variability.
Space Environment In-Situ Suite (SEISS) - 1 • Monitor the proton, electron, and heavy ion fluxes at geosynchronous orbit. • Geomagnetically trapped and highly variable population of electrons and protons • Sporadic fluxes of electrons, protons, and heavy ions of direct solar origin (e.g. from flares) • Background of galactic cosmic rays ranging from several MeV to highly relativistic energies.
