The Low Energy ElectroStatic Analyzer LEESA will measure electrons and protons from 100 eV to 50 keV onboard the DSX spacecraft. This sensor uses hemispherical sector ESAs to achieve a single, 50 degree pitch angle bin. LEESA is a new instrument, based on heritage designs of sensors, analog electronics, and power supply electronics. During the first year of the program, we have carried out a requirements analysis, a concept design phase with trade study, and the preliminary design phase. The results of these are presented.
