 Swales Aerospace - Spacecraft - THEMIS
THEMIS consists of a constellation of five microsatellites (probes) carrying identical suites of electric field, magnetic field, and particle instruments used to determine the cause of global reconfiguration and transport of explosive releases of solar wind energy into the Earth’s magnetosphere—a region of the upper atmosphere that extends for thousands of miles.
THEMIS Probes must be stable for a wide range of configurations (multiple mass property changes) due to instrument boom deployments and fuel depletion.
The THEMIS constellation of five probes is deployed from a Probe Carrier mounted to the third stage of a Delta II rocket that is spinning nominally at 16 rotations per minute (rpm).
