Abstract:

Requirements for increased accuracy in the measurement of thermospheric densities and winds prompted the development of the STEP-1 mission, which employed a complement of instruments to measure local densities, compositions and relative velocity components. The triaxial accelerometer SETA for this mission could be utilized individually or in conjunction with other instruments to determine local density and wind values, which could then be correlated with geophysical parameters and other geophysical measurements to develop and evaluate thermospheric density and circulation models. This document describes the data processing flow and software developed to support this mission.
