Count Component Title Abstract
1 Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) The Deep Space Climate ObserVatoRy (DSCOVR) satellite is a NOAA operated asset to be located at the L1 point. The primary space weather instrument is the PlasMag sensor complement consisting of a magnetometer (MAG), which will measure the local vector magnetic field, and a Faraday Cup (FC), which will measure the solar wind proton/alpha bulk properties (wind speed, density and temperature). The PlasMag data will be used for monitoring solar wind conditions in order to provide forecasts and nowcasts to SWPC customers. The PlasMag data will also be made available to scientists for sensor cal/val and for research purposes. DSCOVR is scheduled to launch in 2QFY15. All data present in the Archive from earlier dates are data used for ground testing, and do not represent the space environment. Initial Operational Capability (IOC) is planned for 3QFY15 as it starts its transit from near-earth orbit. Final Operational Capability (FOC) will be achieved after the satellite reaches the L1 location in 4QFY15. End Of Life (EOL) is anticipated to be December 2019. The Archive will plan on receiving data from IOC to EOL and archiving the data in accordance with Data Center policies.
