Working Group on Explorers, Suborbital, and Other Platforms

Back to Heliophysics Home Page


Working Group Lead
Kristina A. Lynch, Dartmouth College
Brian J. Anderson, Johns Hopkins Univ. Applied Physics Laboratory

Focus: concerns, issues, and new ideas for the various experimental platforms enabling Heliophysics investigations: suborbital, Explorers, CubeSats, ground-based facilities, secondary payloads, laboratory studies  

Tasks:

  • Generate a list of platforms of interest, both existing and new, ranging over all Heliophysics disciplines
  • Early, targeted, specific community outreach to ensure that these platforms are well-represented in the white paper process
  • Fall telecons to discuss issues of concern and ideas which we think the Survey should address explicitly
  • Spring meeting to ensure that these issues and ideas are sent upstream to the Steering Committee
  • Summer reading review of Survey drafts for closure
