CINEMA [CINEMA consortium]
CINEMA (Cubesat for Ion, Neutral, Electron, Magnetic fields) is an international nanosatellite science mission of cooperative university institutions with the objective to provide critical space weather measurements, including unique high sensitivity mapping of ENAs (Energetic Neutral Atoms), and high cadence movies of ring current ENAs in stereo from low Earth orbit.
By the selection of its sensor complement, the mission will pave the way for “magnetospheric constellations” with many satellites making multipoint observations. The project emphasizes student involvement with guidance by experienced engineers and scientists. The implementation of the project is realized using a combination of flight heritage and innovation that balances risk and safety.
CINEMA is a CubeSat (3U) science mission of the following collaborating institutions (CINEMA consortium):
Within the CINEMA program, KHU and UCB will develop and fly three identical CINEMA nanosatellites (hence, the name Trio CINEMA) to provide stereo ENA imaging of the ring current.
The CINEMA nanosatellite consists of bus avionics providing power, communications, and C&DHS (Command and Data Handling System), plus two instruments: the MAGIC (MAGnetometer from Imperial College), and the STEIN (SupraThermal Electrons Ions & Neutrals) particle detector. The system is based on existing bus and instrument designs
