The FIELDS Instrument Suite for Solar Probe Plus

NASA\textquoterights Solar Probe Plus (SPP) mission will make the first in situ measurements of the solar corona and the birthplace of the solar wind. The FIELDS instrument suite on SPP will make direct measurements of electric and magnetic fields, the properties of in situ plasma waves, electron density and temperature profiles, and interplanetary radio emissions, amongst other things. Here, we describe the scientific objectives targeted by the SPP/FIELDS instrument, the instrument design itself, and the instrument conce ...

MEASURING COLLISIONLESS DAMPING IN HELIOSPHERIC PLASMAS USING FIELD\textendashPARTICLE CORRELATIONS

An innovative field-particle correlation technique is proposed that uses single-point measurements of the electromagnetic fields and particle velocity distribution functions to investigate the net transfer of energy from fields to particles associated with the collisionless damping of turbulent fluctuations in weakly collisional plasmas, such as the solar wind. In addition to providing a direct estimate of the local rate of energy transfer between fields and particles, it provides vital new information about the distribut ...

Constraining Solar Wind Heating Processes by Kinetic Properties of Heavy Ions

We analyze the heavy ion components (A \>4 amu ) in collisionally young solar wind plasma and show that there is a clear, stable dependence of temperature on mass, probably reflecting the conditions in the solar corona. We consider both linear and power law forms for the dependence and find that a simple linear fit of the form Ti/Tp=(1.35 \textpm.02 )mi/mp describes the observations twice as well as the equivalent best fit power law of the form Ti/Tp=(m< ...

Pickup ion processes associated with spacecraft thrusters: Implications for solar probe plus

Chemical thrusters are widely used in spacecraft for attitude control and orbital manoeuvres. They create an exhaust plume of neutral gas which produces ions via photoionization and charge exchange. Measurements of local plasma properties will be affected by perturbations caused by the coupling between the newborn ions and the plasma. A model of neutral expansion has been used in conjunction with a fully three-dimensional hybrid code to study the evolution and ionization over time of the neutral cloud produced by the firi ...

Solar probe plus: Unique navigation modeling challenges

The Solar Probe Plus (SPP) mission is preparing to launch in 2018, and will directly investigate the outer atmosphere of our star. At 9. 86 solar radii, SPP must operate in an unexplored regime. The environment and aspects of the mission design present some unique challenges for navigation, particularly in terms of modeling the dynamics. Non-gravitational force models, unique to this mission, are given with analytical expressions. For each of these models (and error sources), a maximum bound on the force perturbation magnitu ...

VALIDITY OF THE TAYLOR HYPOTHESIS FOR LINEAR KINETIC WAVES IN THE WEAKLY COLLISIONAL SOLAR WIND

The interpretation of single-point spacecraft measurements of solar wind turbulence is complicated by the fact that the measurements are made in a frame of reference in relative motion with respect to the turbulent plasma. The Taylor hypothesis\textemdashthat temporal fluctuations measured by a stationary probe in a rapidly flowing fluid are dominated by the advection of spatial structures in the fluid rest frame\textemdashis often assumed to simplify the analysis. But measurements of turbulence in upcoming missions, such ...

The tenuous supersonic solar wind that streams from the top of the corona passes through a natural boundary\textemdashthe Alfv\ en surface\textemdashthat marks the causal disconnection of individual packets of plasma and magnetic flux from the Sun itself. The Alfv\ en surface is the locus where the radial motion of the accelerating solar wind passes the radial Alfv\ en speed, and therefore any displacement of material cannot carry information back down into the corona. It is thus the natural outer boundary of the solar co ...

The design, development, and implementation of a solar environmental simulator (SES) for the SAO Faraday Cup on Solar Probe Plus

This paper describes the implementation of a solar simulator, know as the Solar Environment Simulator (SES), that can simulate solar flux levels up to those encountered at 9.8 solar radii. The paper outlines the design, and the challenges of realizing the SES. It also describes its initial uses for proving out the design of the Solar Winds Electrons, Alphas, and Protons (SWEAP) Faraday cup. The upcoming Solar Probe Plus (SPP) mission requires that its in-situ plasma instrument (the Faraday Cup) survive and operate over an un ...

Solar Probe Plus: A mission to touch the sun

Solar Probe Plus (SPP), currently in Phase B, will be the first mission to fly into the low solar corona, revealing how the corona is heated and the solar wind is accelerated, solving two fundamental mysteries that have been top priority science goals since such a mission was first proposed in 1958. The scale and concept of such a mission has been revised at intervals since that time, yet the core has always been a close encounter with the Sun. SPP uses an innovative mission design, significant technology development and a r ...

Avoiding the burn: Maintaining a Sun-safe attitude for the Solar Probe Plus spacecraft

The Solar Probe Plus (SPP) mission plans to send a spacecraft to explore the inner region of the heliosphere and is currently working towards launch in 2018. The SPP spacecraft will make in-situ measurements and remote observations over a series of 24 nearly-ecliptic solar orbits with perihelion decreasing from 35 solar radii (Rs) to a minimum of 9.86 Rs over a period of 7 years. Proper orientation of the spacecraft and solar arrays relative to the Sun is essential for a successful mission. A large shield must be kept betwee ...

Ceramic coatings for the solar probe plus mission

A study was conducted to develop the coatings needed to protect the Solar Probe Plus Thermal Protection System (TPS) from the harsh environment. The TPS encountered harsh environment during its mission close to the sun, facing significant solar fluxes. The first part of the study addressed the way a coating s microstructure affected its optical properties and the way coatings were designed to maintain the right microstructure over temperature. The study was led by a researcher from the Advanced Technology Laboratory of the W ...
