  5. Operational Importance of Drag The density of the atmosphere in this region varies greatly (300% to 800%*) due to space weather and not yet understood coupled processes. Relative Orbit of Two Separating Spacecraft 410 km X5 flare7/14/2000 drag induced drift 390 km 370 km decay reboost 350 km ISS drops 10kmin several days 330 km 2000 2001 1999 E.

Al. “Thermosphere density response to the 20-21 November 2003 solar and geomagnetic storm from CHAMP and GRACE accelerometer data”, Journal of Geophysical Research, Vol. 111, June 2006 I - Introduction

  6. Scientific Importance of Drag CHAllenging Minisatellite Payload Satellite drag measurements suffer from errors caused by • Unknown acceleration contribution from in-track winds • coefficient of drag accuracy Starshine I I - Introduction

  7. : as : DANDE The DANDE Analogy DANDE will measure density, composition, and wind along its orbit I - Introduction

  8. Introduction to DANDE DRAG and ATMOSPHERIC NEUTRAL DENSITY EXPLORER Mission Statement Explore the spatial and temporal variability of the neutral thermosphere at altitudes of 350 - 200 km, and investigate how wind and density variability translate to drag forces on satellites. I - Introduction

  9. Nanosat V Program at CU DANDE will improve atmospheric models and calibrate near real-time models by measuring the following • Deceleration • Atmospheric composition • Horizontal Winds DANDE is spherically shaped to minimize biases resulting from estimation of the drag coefficient I - Introduction

  15. Neutral Mass Spectrometer (NMS) ION DISTRIBUTION INCOMING NEUTRAL DISTRIBUTION ELECTRON DISTRIBUTION channel 1 channel 2 ..... channel 7 channel 8 channel 9 channel 10 channel 11 channel 12 INSTRUMENT FOCAL POINT MCP ANODES II - Science 15

  16. Neutral Mass Spectrometer • Neutral particle (blue) enters the collimator. (Ions rejected) • Neutral particle is ionized inside of a field free electron bombardment region • Neutral particle enters the energy selector and undergoes acceleration towards the exit • Outside the selector, the particle is accelerated abruptly by a -3kV potential towards the Micro-Channel Plate (MCP) • The impact on the MCP causes a cascade of electrons to travel towards one of the anodes which measures the impact. Which anode is triggered depends on the angle at which the neutral particle entered the collimator. II - Science 16
