Cassini Post Launch Support Grant

Lead Research Organisation: Imperial College London
Department Name: Dept of Physics

Abstract

Contimued operations of the Cassini magnetometer instrument, including sending of instrument commands, interaction with the Cassini Project and other instrument teams, health and safety of the instrument, receipt of data, provision of processed data to the team and the Cassini community, claibration of that data as well as its archiving.
