Provide EUV imaging capability within the resources available for a 3U CubeSat. Advance/extend Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) imaging capability to small low-cost orbital platforms, providing new capability in the LCAS path for demonstrating EUV instrument concepts that lead to major missions. Develop hardware for first flight demonstration of back-illuminated CMOS active pixel sensors. Demonstrate new Doppler Imaging technique for the EUV.
Mature the design and fabricate the Flare Initiation Doppler Imager (FIDI) instrument to demonstrate low-spacecraft-resource EUV technology (most notably, back-illuminated CMOS) from a 3U CubeSat platform, using a recently-developed EUV Doppler imaging technique (see upper right panel).More »
