ASIM is an ESA science instrument assembly to be flown on the Columbus External Platform Facility (CEPF) of the ISS (International Space Station).
The primary research objectives of the mission require the following measurements:
• Study the physics of TLEs. Optical detection of TLEs with high spatial- and time resolution in selected spectral bands - a comprehensive global survey
• Study the physics of TGFs (Terrestrial Gamma-ray Flashes) and their relationship with TLEs and thunderstorms. X-ray and γ-ray detection of TGFs with high time resolution and at photon energies reaching down to 10 keV
• Simultaneous optical detection of thunderstorm- and TLE activity with TGF activity. The optical instruments must view with the X- and γ-ray detector towards the nadir
• Study the coupling to the mesosphere, thermosphere and ionosphere of thunderstorms and TLEs
• Observations from space during a minimum of one year at all local times to observe seasonal and local time variations in thunderstorm-, TLE-, and TGF activity.
Secondary objectives based on observations:
- Spectroscopic studies of the aurora
- Studies of greenhouse gas concentrations above thunderstorms (NOx, O3)
- Studies of meteor ablation in the mesosphere and thermosphere.
FEGS is a project of the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH). As a part of the collaboration with UAH we are allowed access to NASA’s ER-2 aircraft. This is a series of flights over thunder clouds at an altitude of 20-22 km, whose main purpose is the calibration of FEGS. We are participating with an instrument for detecting high energy gamma rays. For the first flights we will use the spare HED detector unit from ASIM. These are three BGO crystals 150 x 50 x 30 mm. New electronics has to be built for the purpose, together with power and data processing unit (DPU). The embedded software running the instrument was finalized in 2015. In 2015 the mechanical design of the thermally controlled box was finalized and the mechanical PDR took place. The integration of the instrument will take place in week 38 of 2016 with the first test flight in week 42 the same year. Two flight campaigns were run in March 2017 and April-May the same year. The first campaign flew from NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center in Palmadale, CA; the second campaign flew from Warner Robins AFB, GA.
At the end of 2015 BCSS was invited to participate in the joint ESA-CAS SMILE mission. The mission is a satellite in which the responsibilities are as follows: CAS delivers the satellite bus and the propulsion system, ESA is responsible for the launch and the interface to the instruments onboard. The instruments are delivered by different groups. The main instrument onboard is the SXI. We have been asked to deliver the door mechanism, which will be protecting the CCD camera of the SXI from the radiation it will otherwise be exposed to during perigee passage. The door will also be activated in case of severe solar storms.
