Abstract:

A preliminary examination was conducted with the objective of evaluating some in-situ measurements obtained from the S3-2 and S3-3 Satellite for the study of the interaction between an ionospheric satellite and its environmental spaceplasma. Specifically, we refer to the measurements of ion currents, electron density and temperature, ionic composition, space potential and electric fields and examine their use for the study of the angular distribution of ions around the satellites.
