MMS 2 Fast Plasma Instrument (FPI) Suite, Dual Electron Spectrometers (DES) Instrument

ResourceID
spase://SMWG/Instrument/MMS/2/FastPlasmaInstrument/DES

Description

The Fast Plasma Investigation (FPI) is an instrument comprised of a suite of components consisting of multiple Dual Electron Spectrometers (DES), Dual Ion Spectrometers (DIS) and Instrument Data Processing Units (IDPU). The Fast Plasma Investigation (FPI) includes four dual electron spectrometers (DES) and four dual ion spectrometers (DIS) per spacecraft. When the data from the two sets of four dual-spectrometers are combined, FPI is able to provide the velocity-space distribution of electrons from 10 eV to 30 keV and ions from 10 eV to 30 keV with a time resolution of 30 ms, and 150 ms, respectively. The FPI Lead Co-I is Dr. Barbara L. Giles.
