Paper Abstract

We propose to perform in situ measurements of precipitating and escaping energetic neutral atoms (ENA) of energies between approximately 5 and 200 keV. The interface characteristics of this new type of instrument, named ISENA (Imaging particle Spectrometer for Energetic Neutral Atoms), are consistent with the SAC-B spacecraft specifications, so that it could be included in its scientific payload. The main technical properties of this experiment are here briefly described.
