Abstract:
EQUATOR-S is a low-cost mission designed to study the Earth's equatorial magnetosphere out to distances of 67000 km and it forms an element of the closely-coordinated fleet of satellites that comprise the IASTP program. It is based on a simple spacecraft design and carries a science payload consisting of advanced instruments that were developed for other IASTP missions. Unique features of EQUATOR-S are its nearly equatorial orbit and its high spin rate. It was launched as an auxiliary payload on an Ariane-4 on December 2nd, 1997. The German Cluster and Equator-S Data Centre, located at MPE, has taken on the task of an EQUATOR-S Data Centre (EDC). It receives the Master Data Records produced at GSOC directly via a leased data line, and also via CD-ROM. With software provided by the instrument teams, the EDC then generates two sets of key parameters, both closely modelled after the CLUSTER data sets: the Summary Parameter Data Base (SPDB) with 1-minute time resolution, and the Prime Parameter Data Base (PPDB) with 1.5 s (i.e., spin) resolution. The SPDB and PPDB contain 55 and 58 quantities, respectively. A standard set of plots of SPDB parameters is generated at the same time. The EDC also archives the data. Once validated by the Lead Investigators, the key parameters can be obtained through MPE's CDAWeb (http://eqs1.plasma.mpe-garching.mpg.de/cdaweb/). The one-minute data (SPDB) is available to everybody, while access to the 1.5-s data (PPDB) is initially restricted to the EQUATOR-S Science Team. The SPDB will also be included on the ISTP Key Parameter CD-ROMs which are available to everybody.
