Abstract:

This is a basic utilization guide for the SSIES-2 Special sensor for Ions, Electrons, and Scintillation data processing, reflecting the operational aspects of the SSIES-2 program. The SSIES-2 system is a composite sensor for thermal plasma measurements which has been developed as a successor to the SSIES Special Sensor for Ions, Electrons, and Scintillation instrument flown on several Defense Meteorological Satellite Program vehicles. This report describes the utilization of the software program SSIES2, which was developed at Phillips Laboratory from the original Air Force Global Weather Center SSIES processing program. The major components of the SSIES-2 system are a The main electronics package MEP,MP b The drift scintillation meter electronics package DSMDMSM c The electron sensor assembly EP d The electron electrometer package ELAMP and e The ion sensor array assembly RPA.
