LOCATION OF PEACE SENSORS ON THE SPACECRAFT


It is anticipated that knowledge of the sensor locations relative to other spacecraft components may be valuable during analysis of low energy electron data, due to spacecraft potential effects. Note that the LEEA and HEEA sensor locations are reversed compared to original planning.

on the spacecraft  (image courtesy ESA).
A PEACE sensor can be seen near the lowest part of the image.
Just above it is a fuel tank (large sphere embedded in experiment platform,
one of six). The sensor head overhangs the edge of the experiment platform
and appears silvery against the darker background of the solar panels
which cover the curved surface of the spacecraft. The second sensor lies
on the opposite side of the spacecraft, near the top of the image.
