Pulsaur

The Pulsaur (Pulsating Aurora) II rocket was launched from the Andoya rocket range in northern Norway on 9 February 1994. The objective of the payload was to make measurements inside an active auroral display. MSSL contributed the microchannel plate detector sytem for the low energy electron analyser. The PI for the electron instrument was Mark Smith (Goddard Spaceflight Center), and the collaboration also included SwRI and RAL.

An example of data from one of the upward looking sensors is shown in the figure. The precipitating electrons (downward flowing) are clearly seen at about 1keV.
