Space weather measurements measuring electron and ions in the range of 2-200 keV.


Stereo imaging of magnetospheric energetic neutral atom, multi-point measurements of suprathermal electrons and ions associated with auroral acceleration as well as electron microbursts, and complementary measurements of magnetic fields for particle data. Each satellite is equipped with a SupraThermal Electron, Ion, Neutral (STEIN) instrument covering the energy range ~2-200 keV, and a 3-axis magnetometer of magnetoresistive sensors.
