4.13 Summary of HISCALE 4-pi Viewing and Sectoring Relationships


Document Source : Dr. Ed Roelof

Subject: WART Angle


I have recalculated the phase angle in the s/c X-Y plane between CA60 and LEMS30. I believe you are carrying it as 48.60. I got 113.70 by going back to the engineering drawings of LAN 2B. It also yields agreement between W1 (0.5-1 MeV protons) and FP'6 (ions of about the same proton energy) for plots using PITCH on the Jupiter data. This will also affect the modifications for the DE electron pitch cosines.

The sun pulse, actually a pseudo sun pulse, defines the start of a spin. The pseudo sun pulse occurs when the sun crosses the spacecraft X axis.


We also have the ability of introducing an additional offset into the start of our accumulation sectors by a LAN sector lag command. Since this lag does not come out in our data stream, we do not intend to use it.


Aperture LEMS30 LEFS60 LEMS120 LEFS150 WART

Polar angle from z axis 30 60 120 150 60
