Monitoring electric fields in LEO for space weather monitoring.


Monitoring electric fields in Low-Earth Orbit. Addresses the need for an inexpensive and robust space-weather monitor that meets requirements for specification and forecasting.

DIME will provide the first-ever capability for measuring electric fields and monitoring critical space-weather effects on the ionosphere from a CubeSat. Two Langmuir probes to measure in-situ ionospheric plasma densities. Science and attitude magnetometers. Four electric field probes on 3.5-meter cable booms.
